This work focuses on the vowel system of the Italo-Romance dialect spoken in the village of San Valentino in Abruzzo Citeriore. Based on novel fieldwork data, the article describes the vowel system of Sanvalentinese from a phonetic and phonological point of view and accounts for a number of puzzling evolutions in the light of a reconstruction of previous stages of the dialect.

This paper deals with the distribution of subject clitics in northern Italian dialects. Building on quantitative data, I argue that the observed microvariation cannot derive (only) from external linguistic factors such as contact, areal diffusion, sociolinguistic dynamics, etc. Rather, a principled feature-based analysis is needed in order to account for certain patterns of defectivity and syncretism that, although typologically rare, occur systematically in northern dialects.

The paper deals with the syntax of interrogatives in Lombard dialects. It mainly focuses on novel data from an Alpine and an Eastern Lombard variety; respectively, the dialect of Cavergno (Valle Maggia, CH) and Comun Nuovo (Bergamo, IT). These dialects show three different types of wh in situ, which could be analysed in three different ways: (i) without wh-movement; (ii) with partial wh-movement, and (iii) with wh-movement. 1. Introduzione Questo articolo verte sulle strutture interrogative attestate in alcune varietà lombarde che consentono di lasciare il sintagma interrogativo (wh) in situ, ovvero nella posizione che tale sintagma occuperebbe nella corrispondente frase dichiarativa. Il fenomeno è presente in varie aree del settentrione; in area lombarda si tratta soprattutto di alcune varietà della Svizzera italiana e di alcuni dialetti lombardo-orientali, quali bergamasco e bresciano, si veda Lurà (1987); Manzini / Savoia (2005); Poletto / Pollock (2009). In molte di queste varietà-e diversamente dall'italiano-il wh in situ è la strategia di interrogazione pragmaticamente non marcata. I dati qui presentati derivano in parte da Donzelli (2015) e in parte sono stati raccolti in seno al progetto AIS, reloaded, 1 mediante inchieste dialettali nelle 18 località AIS 2 della Svizzera italiana. Questo lavoro sul campo ha permesso di indagare la (micro-)variazione sia all'interno di circoscritte aree linguistiche, sia in ciascuna delle varietà indagate. In questa sede la nostra analisi si concentrerà sul dialetto di Cavergno 3 (CA), varietà lombardo-alpina parlata in Valle Maggia (Canton Ticino), e sul dialetto di Comun Nuovo (CN), varietà lombardo-orientale parlata in provincia di Bergamo. L'ipotesi centrale del presente lavoro è che, sebbene entrambi i dialetti lombardi qui presi in considerazione presentino il fenomeno del wh in situ, esistono almeno tre differenti strutture sintattiche caratterizzate dall'ordine in situ, che, anticipando le nostre conclusioni, possono essere classificate nel modo seguente: 1 [SNF 100012_162482] periodo di ricerca: 2016-2019. 2 Acronimo per lo Sprach-und Sachatlas Italiens und der Südschweiz, si veda Jaberg / Jud (1928). 3 Per una classificazione esaustiva si veda Salvioni

Pronoun systems across Romance

this article deals with the syntax of personal pronouns and focuses on clitic pronouns, which are one of the major sources of variation across the Romance languages. For each parameter of variation (e.g. placement, climbing, doubling, interpretation, etc.) the article seeks to establish descriptive generalisations based on a rich array of data gathered from present-day varieties and historical vernaculars.

Subject and impersonal clitics in northern Italian dialects 1

The present contribution focuses on the interaction between the impersonal si/se and subject clitics in northern Italian dialects. In western dialects, si co-occurs with a non-agreeing clitic form (while it cannot co-occur with object clitics in the so-called passive-si construction); in Venetan dialects, the co-occurrence of se and subject clitics is degraded/ungrammatical, while in Friulian the combination is acceptable, but the subject clitic is dropped. I argue that the peculiar behaviour of northern Italian dialects results from the Multiple-Agree relation holding between T, sarb, and the argument of passive-like constructions (D'Alessandro 2007), coupled with language-specific constraints on the realisation of T's features (Calabrese & Pescarini 2014).
