Per una descrizione linguistica dell’ucraino

Salvatore Del Gaudio


Ukrainian Studies have undoubtedly assisted at a rapid international proliferation in the last decades. Outside Ukraine, Austro-German and North American scholars have played an essential role in popularizing Ukrainian linguistic and sociolinguistic issues. The same cannot be said for the Italian Slavistic and Ukrainistic tradition, where, notwithstanding consistent contributions on Ukrainian culture, literature, history, language history and translation, papers devoted to linguistic issues and/or aimed at a formal description of the Ukrainian language are almost inexistent. Even among Italian linguists, and despite the large presence of Ukrainian communities in Italy, very little is known about this language. For the reasons just expressed, we undertake, in this article, the task to provide a preliminary description of Ukrainian aimed at Italian academic readers.
