La lingua e la letteratura italiana in prospettiva sincronica e diacronica. Atti del VI Convegno internazionale di italianistica dell’Università di Craiova, 19-20 settembre 2014 | Franco Cesati | Published : 2015
This is a preliminary description of reported use of dialects in contemporary Rome. 151 respondents living in Rome were invited to specify how often they speak a local dialect or any other Italian dialect in their everyday life. Their answers are seen in relation to their age and gender. The interpretation of results is informed by qualitative data and considers aspects that could have influenced respondents’ answers, such as self-censorship, social prestige attached to dialects, proximity of Roman dialect to normative Italian and perception of what is Roman dialect.
