Note su alcune riflessioni ecdotiche di Oreste Macrì sugli autori contemporanei

Alberto Cadioli
Il saggio che qui si presenta si propone di far conoscere un aspetto poco studiato della ricca personalità critica di Oreste Macrì (1913-1998), critico dai vasti orizzonti e studioso di testi della letteratura italiana e spagnola, protagonista della stagione dell’ermetismo fiorentino e poi dei dibattiti culturali e critici del secondo dopoguerra: l’aspetto filologico. Si può riconoscere Macrì «filologo» nel confronto aperto con Cesare Segre sul testo della Chanson de Roland, ma anche nelle annotazioni a...

From the more iconic to the less iconic linguistic form: morphological syntagms in Pāṇini

Tiziana Pontillo
Starting from Kastovsky’s definition of “morphological syntagm”, I try to understand whether any similarity exists between complex word forms (such as compounds and secondary derivatives) and the matching source-phrases which should be taken into account in the relevant formation-rules according to Pāṇini’s teaching. Thus, A 2.1.1 is interpreted and tested in a fresh manner, leading to the outline of a a scalar pattern of iconicity which encompasses the several outputs of the provisions it governs....

Sul presente neoindoario a doppio verbo finito

Paolo Milizia
The present paper deals with the problem of the origin of a type of “double-finite” periphrasis having the structure, e. g., IS WALKS = ‘walks’ – i.e., formed by a finite form of the ‘be’ auxiliary plus a finite form of the main verb – which is used to express the present tense in a series of New Indo-Aryan languages (including Gujarati and some varieties of the Hindi area). According to the hypothesis proposed here,...

Riflessioni sparse su alcune parole armene: erivar ‘cavallo’, amusin ‘moglie’, tʽoṙn ‘nipote (di nonno)’

Moreno Morani
The paper discusses some problems that searcher must face when he investigates the etymology of a word. After a short discussion of general problems, I present some etymologies of Armenian words: erivar ‘horse’ (from *roi-bho, originally ‘[animal] brown’, cf. Lithuanian raibas ‘shy’) and consider methodological questions about the etymologies of amusin ‘wife’ (from am- ‘together’ and the root *euk- ‘to accostumate’) and tʽoṙn ‘grandson’, connected with OInd. tarṇas ‘young animal’ and Lith. tar͂nas ‘servant’. KEYWORDS:...

Strutture compositive e inferenze interpretative negli inni del Rigveda

Daniele Maggi
This analysis concerns the thematic and formal structure of the Rigvedic text X, 69, the hymn of the fire of Vadhryáśva. The basic structure is a sequence of pairs of stanzas, arranged in their turn in two sets of six (1-2, 3-4, 5-6 + 7-8, 9-10, 11-12), each one set with characteristics of its own but also with correspondences in particular between every pair of stanzas and the respective pair at the same height in...

Del metodo in sintassi, col pretesto di mano

Nunzio La Fauci
This work examines four Italian constructions which on the surface appear to resemble each other. In all these constructions, the noun mano ‘hand’ apparently functions as a direct object. Conducted from a functional perspective, the research outlined in this paper demonstrates how such constructions differ greatly from each other. Such an analytic result is achieved by virtue of a simple definition of the different values for mano based on the well-known “rapports syntagmatiques et rapports...

Fra glosse medievali e dialetti moderni: riconsiderando le glosse romanze del codice criptense Gr. Z. α. IV

Franco Fanciullo
Again on some ancient Romance glosses (from Southern Italy) in Greek alphabet. The glosses (Romance interlinear translation of difficult ancient Greek words in a Greek grammatical text) are of uncertain dating (XIII-XIV, perhaps XV, centuries), sometimes of uncertain interpretation (e.g.: what does a Romance sequence such as λουτζεσινερι, gloss n. 24, mean?), in any case of uncertain origin. In fact their very complex linguistic facies gathers many different elements (phonetic features, lexical items…), which can...

La concordanza negativa nel volgare veneto delle Origini

Jacopo Garzonio
In this paper I analyse the variation displayed by Old Venetan texts regarding Negative Concord with preverbal items. Venetian displays strict Negative Concord, while Paduan and Veronese have mandatory preverbal negation only with negative adverbs and the negative coordination particle. With argumental quantifiers (like ‘nobody’) preverbal negation is very rare in these varieties. I propose that the distribution is driven by two factors: the category of the preverbal negative item, and its structural position above...

I nomi greci in -ων tra eredità indoeuropea e innovazioni monoglottiche

Francesco Dedè
In this paper, Ancient Greek -ων nouns are analysed from the point of view of their word formation patterns. Seven patterns are individuated and their main features are presented and discussed. It is then noted that in the diachronic development of this noun class in Greek a tendency can be observed towards the creation of two synchronically coherent series of morphological features: oxytone accentuation is associated with feminine gender, maintenance of suffixal ablaut and deverbal...

Henry Sweet stenografo e il ruolo della stenografia nella tradizione fonetica europea

Francesca Chiusaroli
Starting from the wide recognition of Henry Sweet’s position among the highest representatives of European philology and phonetics in 19th-century linguistics, this paper aims to highlight the author’s specific interest in sound transcription as shown in the publication of A manual of current shorthand, orthographic and phonetic (1892). Far from representing a merely technical research unrelated to the phonetic investigations of the time, the shorthand tradition can be recognized to play a key role in...

Presentazione del ciclo di "Seminari di PEML in Ambrosiana"

PEML Redazione
Nella primavera del 2019 Prassi Ecdotiche della Modernità Letteraria ha organizzato, insieme con la classe di Italianistica dell’Accademia Ambrosiana, un ciclo di seminari che portano il titolo: Stesure, redazioni, revisioni, riscritture: problemi di definizione. Il punto di partenza di questa proposta nasce da una domanda, cui si intrecciano subito numerose altre: c’è differenza tra «stesura» e «redazione», spesso usati come sinonimi in filologia e nelle pagine critiche? Se una differenza c’è, qual è la specificità...
