Open Access existentials book now out

Posted on October 1, 2015 by

A time of existential angst is now over for Delia Bentley and her former postdocs Francesco Ciconte and Silvio Cruschina, as their co-authored book, Existentials and Locatives in Romance Dialects of Italy, is now available to read!

You can take a look at the book, which provides the first comprehensive survey of existentials and locatives in over 100 of these varieties, here. The book is the outcome of the AHRC-funded project Existential constructions: an investigation into the Italo-Romance dialects, which ran from 2010 to 2014.

Manchet is particularly impressed that the ebook version is available Open Access, under a CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0 license. Congratulations to Delia, Francesco and Silvio!
