Book Information


Title: Reperti di plurilinguismo nell’Italia spagnola (sec. XVI-XVII) [Plurilingualism in Spanish Italy, 1500-1700]
Edited By: Thomas Krefeld
Wulf Oesterreicher
Verena Schwägerl-Melchior
Series Title: De Gruyter Pluralisierung & Autorität 38

This volume sheds light on plurilingualism in Spanish-occupied Italy during the early modern period from a variety of perspectives. Topics include written language in pragmatic contexts (such as administrative documents), plurilingual literature and theater, and early modern thought on plurilingualism. I contributi riuniti negli Atti del Convegno „Reperti di plurilinguismo nell'Italia spagnola (sec. XVI‑XVII) / Hallazgos de plurilingüismo en la Italia española (siglos XVI‑XVII)“ (Monaco di Baviera 13./14.10.2011) indagano da angolature diverse il plurilinguismo dell'Italia spagnola nella prima età moderna quale problema della storiografia delle lingue romanze. Una parte dei contributi è dedicata al contatto linguistico e alla produzione discorsiva-testuale italo-spagnola, compresa la riflessione (soprattutto letteraria) su di essa. Un'altra parte dei contributi si occupa di questioni più strettamente italianistiche, come il rapporto tra tradizioni scrittorie regionali e il toscano.
