The languages of Italy.

I’m researching a page or two of the forthcoming (very forthcoming) textbook, and came across a couple of really interesting bits and bobs.  The first is this article about the Arbereshe Albanian minority in Italy, which reminded me of this other wikipedia article and map on the dialects of Italy today.  The map suggests that there is still enormous regional variation and diversity in the languages spoken in Italy.

Further searching led me to Italian Language Today, which looks like a really interesting book, a journal which I can’t get at… and this really interesting piece on the use of Italian as ‘polite’ language in Italy.
