Title: Rhaeto-Cisalpine at a glance
Subtitle: Vol.2 Elements of Syntax
Written By: Claudi Meneghin
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Romance Linguistics 68
Description:

Rhaeto-Cisalpine (or Padanian) is a western Romance language, spoken in
the Po valley (extended to include the Ligurian coast), which has developed
in an independent fashion from Italian and is strictly related to French,
Occitan, and Catalan. This book is the natural continuation of "Rhaeto-
Cisalpine at a glance, Vol.1" and specifically deals with syntax issues.

It aims at both offering a solid reference about, and at proposing a complete
synthesis of this diasystem, including the Rhaeto-Romance languages and
the so called Gallo-Italic ones (sometimes mistaken for Italian dialects, a
conclusion probably driven by unscientific criteria inherited by the Italian
Risorgimento political bias). In the formation of a general Rhaeto-Cisalpine
koiné the following criteria have systematically been adopted: getting close to
medieval forms, purging the language from Italian influence, adopting
Galloroman models as decisive contributions, accepting widespread forms
and generalising local ones. In particular Ladin forms (both Rhaetian and
Dolomitic) have been deemed central, thus synthetic Padanian has been
modelled mainly upon these ones. The author is the founder of the "Institud
de studis Rhaeto-Cisalpins".
