Brown's Stages Of Morphosyntactic Development Applied To The Typical Development Of Italian, Marie Laiche 2021 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Brown's Stages Of Morphosyntactic Development Applied To The Typical Development Of Italian, Marie Laiche

LSU Master's Theses

Background: In A First Language (1973), Roger Brown called for an increase in crosslinguistic data and analysis of morphosyntax across languages as more research in this field is crucial for working out the overarching determinants of language acquisition order and for the ability to accurately compare child language acquisition across different languages. An increase in this research would benefit linguistic researchers and speech-language-pathologists offering services to or evaluating children speaking a different language or more than one language. The current study seeks to add to the field of crosslinguistic research by adapting Brown’s guidelines of English language acquisition to ...

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Over the course of Italy’s linguistic history, dialect literature has evolved a s a genre unto itself. The scope of research presented in this study examines the question of dialect literature as a valid genre which bears lines of demarcation that would assign it the distinction of genre. Research reveals that in fact the simple election of a language, or dialect, does not itself constitute a genre; moreover, most dialect literature bears characteristics that would neatly place it in another genre.

To examine this verity, this research compares two dialect poets who employ Milanese as a means of transmission ...


A Tale Of Two Nations’ Histories The Application Of Literary Fairy Tales As A Firsthand Account Of History, Nicholas Gottlob 2020 Wayne State University

A Tale Of Two Nations’ Histories The Application Of Literary Fairy Tales As A Firsthand Account Of History, Nicholas Gottlob

Honors College Theses

Fairy tales are often thought to be solely for children as a means of education and entertainment. The literary fairy tale provided a medium that allowed authors to express their opinions under the guise of a story. This has not always been the case as literary fairy tales have been utilized as political instruments by authors and intended for a highly educated audience. Using fairy tales as a facade provided protection for authors, as outright criticisms against those in power usually resulted in dire consequences such as imprisonment or even death for the objector. The literary fairy tale provided a ...

'Purgatorio' 2019: A Response To The Work Of Marco Martinelli And Ermanna Montanari, Heather Webb 2020 University of Cambridge

'Purgatorio' 2019: A Response To The Work Of Marco Martinelli And Ermanna Montanari, Heather Webb

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This brief report discusses Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari’s Purgatorio 2019 at Ravenna’s Teatro delle Albe. The report sets out three aspects of the political remediation of Dante’s Purgatorio that the Teatro delle Albe has offered: first, a plurilingual, pluricultural vision of Italy; second, an emphasis on denouncing domestic violence; and third, an environmentalist impulse that reads the tropes of care and cultivation in Dante’s canticle in the light of the notable engagement of today’s youth to protest our current state of environment crisis.

The Cessation Of Music In The 'Paradiso', William Mahrt 2020 University of Pennsylvania

The Cessation Of Music In The 'Paradiso', William Mahrt

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This article explores Dante’s narrative use of music in the Paradiso as it leads to his ultimate vision of God. Unlike the Inferno and Purgatorio, the Paradiso seems to be suffused with continuous music, one that is inherent in the unending motions of the heavens. In the Paradiso, however, there is also much mention of the absence of sound. There are at least fifteen instances that describe a person or a group suddenly falling into silence, either as a natural conclusion of a speech, or unexpectedly as a momentary interruption of music. This article contends that the purpose of ...
