The Languages of Italian Canadians.
Vizmuller-Zocco, Jana
Italica, v72 n4 p512-29 Win 1995
Examines the transplantation of dialects of Italian abroad, particularly to Canada. Argues that any discussion of the language of immigrants from Italy has to start from the premise that they brought their dialect, not Italian, to their new home. Conclusions indicate that "Italo-Canadian" shares many linguistic characteristics with popular Italian and that dialects are kept alive by the first generation. (32 references) (CK)
