By Christina Tortora

This publication provides and analyzes a number of beneficial properties of the morphosyntax of Borgomanerese, a Gallo-Italic dialect spoken within the city of Borgomanero, within the Piedmont area of Northern Italy. The learn is extremely comparative, drawing at the literature on various different Italian dialects and Romance languages (as good as English), to notify our figuring out of the Borgomanerese phenomena. Christina Tortora takes the numerous strange and understudied (and frequently novel) evidence of Borgomanerese grammar as compelling grounds for revisiting and reformulating present analyses of syntactic phenomena in those different languages. The phenomena taken care of comprise the syntax and semantics of the vulnerable locative in presentational sentences; the syntax of item clitics and argument prepositions; the syntax of matters and topic clitics; the syntax of interrogatives; clausal structure; and the connection among orthography and theoretical research. The primary price of this publication lies either within the wealthy description of the morphosyntactic phenomena of Borgomanerese, a lot of that have no longer been formerly suggested within the literature, and within the consequent novel analyses built, which give a contribution insights for different languages and dialects, and improve our knowing of syntax and syntactic conception in general.
