Title: Women, Language and Grammar in Italy, 1500-1900
Written By: Helena Sanson
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780197264836.do
Series Title: British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Monographs
Description:

In the sixteenth century Italian was a literary language not accessible to the
less educated, among them women, who would instead speak a local dialect.
Little attention has been paid to women's linguistic education, but this study
shows the vital role they played in developing Italian as a true mother tongue.
