Abstract:

Classical Latin appears to be without regional dialects, yet Latin evolved
in little more than a millennium into a variety of different languages (the
Romance languages: Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese etc.). Was regional
diversity apparent from the earliest times, obscured perhaps by the
standardisation of writing, or did some catastrophic event in late
antiquity cause the language to vary? These questions have long intrigued
Latinists and Romance philologists, struck by the apparent uniformity of
Latin alongside the variety of Romance. This book establishes that Latin
was never geographically uniform. The changing patterns of diversity and
the determinants of variation are examined from the time of the early
inscriptions of Italy, through to late antiquity and the beginnings of the
Romance dialects in the western Roman provinces. This is the most
comprehensive treatment ever undertaken of the regional diversification of
Latin throughout its history in the Roman period.
