Abstract

The aim of the following study is to verify to what extent the voiced variant [z] is increasingly spreading into the north-western Tuscan territories. This variant is typical of northern Italy varieties but it has also been recently found within Florentine speech, whereas a research on the north-western part of Tuscany has not been conducted up to now. This paper presents therefore the results of a sociophonetic analysis of intervocalic /s/ as it is realised in the regional Italian spoken in Livorno. Moreover, the following research aims to verify if [z] selection is determined according to gender and social class. Preliminary results show that gender seems to be the parameter which mostly influences the phonetic realization of /s/.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
