Subject: Italian isogloss (essere/stare)

Hello everybody
 
I am looking for any source concerning the isogloss essere/stare in
Italian (Max e'/sta serio).
 
I have already found some normative remark of the Accademia della
Crusca (Valeria della Valle e Giuseppe Patota, Il Salvaitaliano,
Milano, Sperling & Kupfer Editori, 2000 http://www.accademiadellacrusca.it/faq/faq_risp.php?id=4013&ctg_id=93)
but I would need something about the concrete linguistic boundary.
 
Thanks in advance
 
Sara Vecchiato

Subject: Recent changes in the German language

I am currently writing a disseration on the globalisation of the
English language with particular reference to the effects on
Germany. I am therefore looking for any evidence of recent change in
the German language, especially syntactical change, or any information
at all which would help me research the topic. I am also interested in
any articles written on the subject in general.

I would be very grateful for any help. 
Thanks
Catherine Hewett
