Message 1: New web page on italian linguistics

Subject: New web page on italian linguistics

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this.]

I'm pleased to announce a new Web Page concerning italian linguistics,
whose name is 'Linguaggio e Comunicazione'. You can visit it at the

Its main resource is my HTML version of 1872-73 linguistics
unpublished lessons of italian linguist Giovanni Flechia
(1811-1892). I've been working on the original manuscript (226 pages
written by a student of the University of Torino) since 1992 (I first
converted it in electronic format, then I decided to put it on the
Internet and offer it to all the interested linguists).

The subject of these lessons (in italian) deals with latin and italian
morphology, with many digressions on italian dialects. The linguistic
relevance of the text is great, because Flechia was probably, in those
years well known as fundamental for the birth of italian language
science, the only linguist who can be "compared" to G.I. Ascoli, the
father of italian linguistics.

My pages are (for the moment) only in italian and contain also:

a) a small archive on language-concerning articles published by
italian newspapers;

b) information and data on my paper about the feminine names of job in
italian literature.

Any comments and suggestions are welcomed.
