Book Information


Title: Die Rolle der norditalienischen Varietäten in der "Questione della lingua" [The Role of Varieties of Northern Italian in the 'Questione de la lingua']
Subtitle: Eine diachrone Untersuchung zu Sprachbewusstsein, Sprachwissen und Sprachbewertung
Written By: Sandra Ellena
Series Title: De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 357

Over a long period, Italian scholars discussed the norm of an Italian standard
language. Finally, the language of Florentine poets of the 14th century emerged
as winner in this competition of various models. Based on texts from the 13th to
the 17th centuries, this book shows that in reflections on language norm, also
Northern Italian dialects and common languages were frequently described,
assessed and in part even defended as counter-model to the Tuscan language.
