Query for this summary posted in LINGUIST Issue: 21.3684                                                                                                                                               
 

Earlier this semester I sent in the query "21.3684: Qs: Resources: 
History of the Italian Language." My students and I would like to thank 
all those who responded:

Michael Friesner of the Université du Québec à Montréal, Francesco 
Gardani of the Institute for Romance Languages at the Vienna 
University of Economics and Business, and Stephan Schmid, 
Phonetisches Laboratorium der Universität Zürich, all suggested Martin 
Maiden's "A Linguistic History of Italian," London: Longman, 1995.

Pierluigi Cuzzolin, professor of General and Historical Linguistics at the 
University of Bergamo (Italy), Andrea Sansò at the Università 
dell'Insubria, Como, Italy, and Federico Aurora, a PhD Fellow in the 
Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas at the 
University of Oslo all suggested Zamboni, Alberto. 2000. "Alle origini 
dell'italiano." Dinamiche e tipologie della transizione dal latino. Roma, 
Carocci, pp. 226. The book  concentrates only on the internal history of 
the language. It is available at:

http://ilmiolibro.kataweb.it/schedalibro.asp?id=281196

Cecilia Poletto from the University of Venice and Padua suggested 
Lorenzo Renzi, "Introduzione alla filologia romanza," Bologna, il Mulino, 
and a grammar of Old Italian which has just come out by IL Mulino (not 
set in a diachronic perspective, it only describes the features of  the 
language spoken in Florence in the XIII century), "Grammatica 
dell'italiano antico," a cura di Giampaolo Salvi e Lorenzo Renzi, 
Bologna, Il Mulino 2010, 2 voll.

Erika, a Linguistic Phd Student, used the following when she was an 
MA student: 
L. Serianni, Lezioni di grammatica storica italiana, Roma, Bulzoni and 
C. Marazzini, La storia della lingua italiana attraverso i testi, Bologna, Il 
Mulino. She also suggested looking at C. Marazzini, La lingua italiana. 
Profilo storico, II ed., and the following link:

Chris Sams at Stephen F. Austin State University suggested Bruno 
Migliorini's "Storia della lingua italiana" or his Italian Language 
(Abridged and recast by T. Gwynfor Griffith). Storia is out of print in the 
US, but can be purchased from Italy. Italian Language is still available 
in the US. There is a Spanish translation of "Historia de la lengua 
italiana" available in the US as well. He also uses Tore Jansen's A 
Natural History of Latin.

Peggy Renwick, a graduate student at Cornell University suggested 
"Romance Languages: A Historical Introduction," by Ti Alkire and Carol 
Rosen. This book uses as its basis comparisons between Spanish, 
Italian and French, with excursions into Portuguese, Romanian, and 
other Romance languages. The book was recently reviewed on 
LINGUIST List; and is available at the Amazon.com URL:

Alkire/dp/0521717841/
