Advances in Italian Dialectology

Sketches of Italo-Romance Grammars


This volume is a collection of grammar sketches from several Italo-Romance varieties.
The contributions cover various areas of linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax)
and are organized in sections according to the customary geolinguistic classification.
Each chapter provides the description of a salient phenomenon for a given language,
based on novel data, as well as the state-of-the-art knowledge on that phenomenon.
The articles are in-depth studies carried out by prominent experts as well as promising
young scholars.
The theoretical apparatus is kept to a minimum in order to make the book accessible to
scholars without specific expertise. For the same reason, hypotheses and formalisms are
introduced gradually, only if necessary for the description of the data.

"A Russian-Yakut-Ewenki Trilingual Dictionary" by N.V. Sljunin

Edition, Introduction and Notes by José Andrés Alonso de la Fuente 


José Andrés Alonso de la Fuente

In “A Russian-Yakut-Ewenki trilingual dictionary” by N.V. Sljunin, José Andrés Alonso de la Fuente offers the philological edition of a very early twentieth-century source of two indigenous languages from Siberia.
This edition includes the facsimile of the the original handwritten document.
Whereas specialist have known about the existence of Sljunin’s Yakut data by indirect references to it in at least one standard dictionary, there was not available information regarding Sljunin’s Ewenki data.
Furthermore, careful linguistic analysis reveals that the Ewenki variety reflected in Sljunin’s dictionary may have already disspeared.
