    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This handbook, the first to focus specifically on the varieties of Ladin spoken in the Brixen-Tyrol area, intends to provide a systematic, up-to-date overview of research in Ladin linguistics, taking into account both traditional research questions (internal and external language history; specific linguistic traits; classification) and new areas of research (corpus linguistics; neurolinguistics; the teaching of Ladin in a multilingual context; Ladin in the mass media and in social networks).

    The volume is divided into three main thematic parts. The first part deals with Ladin as a linguistic system, covering its history, evolution, and present-day characteristics. The second parts discusses Ladin as a means of communication that plays a crucial role in forming the identity of its speakers. This particular identity is characterized, at least since the second half of the twentieth century, by a highly complex degree of multilingualism, which will be described in its various aspects. The third part addresses Ladin as an object of linguistic research. The volume is completed by a detailed index.
