Translating Italian Dialects: Issues, Strategies and Solutions across Languages. (UPDATED 6/3/2019)

Monday, June 3, 2019 - 1:39pm
Federico Tiberini, Florida Atlantic University

Dialects are a major component of Italian linguistic richness, which depict a specific community with its own history, customs and habits, and which profoundly varies from the North to the South. The peculiarity of Italian linguistic history is its resistance towards its linguistic uniformity, imposed after the unification of the Country in the second half of the 19th century, which however is still far from being a reality today. In fact, the relationship between dialects and Standard Italian results into a form of bilingualism and diglossia. These phenomena happen when the use of dialect in an informal context takes place opposed to the use of Standard Italian in a formal one within the same community of speakers.
