ITAL6742

Written Spoken Broadcast Ital

Written, Spoken, Broadcasted Contemporary Italian

This course will study written, spoken and broadcasted contemporary Italian. Lessons will focus on various linguistic registers: youth jargon, email, chat, literary language and language used in films. The goal of this course is also to investigate whether the changes brought by the high-speed world of electronic communication and television have caused a linguistic degradation or have expanded the use and created more speakers of the contemporary Italian language.
