Cambridge Italian Dialect Syntax-Morphology Meeting CIDSM

The Cambridge Italian Dialect Syntax-Morphology Meeting aims to bring together dialectologists working on any aspect of the syntax and/or morphology of the dialects of Italy, including non-Romance varieties, and encourages all approaches – whether synchronic or diachronic, descriptive or theoretical (all frameworks) – to the regional languages and dialects spoken throughout Italy. It started in Cambridge in 2006, and has been taking place yearly since.
