Italoamericano

Italiano e inglese in contatto negli USA. Analisi diacronica variazionale e migrazionale

[Italian-American: Italian and English in Contact in the United States. A Migrational and Diachronic Analysis of Variation]

Series:Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 375

DE GRUYTER MOUTON

    Aims and Scope

    The Italian migration to the United States spurred a particularly dynamic and multifarious language contact between Italian varieties and American English, which is the main object of study of this monograph. The Italian-American linguistic contact is characterized by a duration of more than 400 years, a wide geographic diffusion and a variable intensity. The author undertakes a diachronic variational analysis of its dynamics and results and provides a methodological innovation for contact studies. Foreword by Tullio De Mauro.

    Tra le più note realtà linguistiche italiane all’estero spicca quella italoamericana, risultato dell’emigrazione degli italiani negli USA, contraddistinta da un dinamismo particolare. L’analisi diacronica variazionale e migrazionale delle dinamiche del contatto italoamericano rappresenta una novità metodologica nell’ambito della ricerca contattuale. L’intensità e l’estensione del fenomeno italoamericano nel tempo e nello spazio si rispecchiano nella composizione del variegato corpus di dati empirici. La prefazione è di Tullio de Mauro.
