Trabalza, C., Storia della Grammatica Italiana (Book Review)

Livingston, A. A.

In one of the most far-reaching social questions that have confronted Italy, and on which nearly everyone has had something if not too much to say, this book is, in point of critical study, the most comprehensive and organic. It not only reviews previous effort in this vast field, but adds solid contributions of hitherto unconsidered documents. And while already noteworthy reservations must be made on some of the passages in this great work, and while additional documents must be taken account of, this history will be for some time the point of departure for all studies on the question of the Italian language, on the history of grammatical categories, on the theory of grammar as an esthetic, dogmatical or practical entity.
