Il sistema di doppia complementazione nel dialetto di Gallipoli (Lecce). Un'analisi semantica
Ingår i: Arena Romanistica. - 1890-4580. ; 8, s. 177-197
- Like the other dialects spoken in the Salentine peninsula, the dialect from Gallipoli, Gallipolino, presents a limited use of infinitival clauses. Instead of several infinitival constructions as in standard Italian, we find some finite constructions introduced by two different complementizers: ka and ku. Traditionally, the phenomenon of the double complementation system in Southern Italian dialects has been described in semantic-functional terms, highlighting the fact that the distribution depends on what the matrix predicate denotes. The purpose of this study is to propose a new analysis, anchored to some semantic issues that seem to have a significant incidence on the phenomenon.
