Pasqualigo, C., La Lingua rustica padovana nei due poeti G. B. Maganza e Domenico Pittarini (Book Review)

Livingston, A. A.

This book, which has received favorable notice elsewhere, is conducted in a semi-popular vein, but with much novelty of material and evidence of extensive erudition. It considers the development in Venetia of the Germanic speech islands and the Ladin undercurrent of dialect elements, treated so brilliantly by Ascoli in Archiv. Glott., I; it compares the dialects of Verona and Lonigo; discusses foreign influences in the dialects of the XVth century; the origin of the maccaronea, in criticism of Zannoni; finally the diffusion and character of the lingua pavana, in connection with Maganza, Rapa and others. Of special richness is the collection of proverbs, a field in which the name Pasqualigo is of course associated permanently with those of Bianchi and Musatti if not of Pitrè.
