Nicholas Patruno provides an analysis into the language used by Giovanni Verga with ample documentation that sets the ground for future work on the author. This volume is unique in that it focuses on Verga’s early works. The study considers three aspects of language that structure the volume: phonology, morphosyntax, and lexicon.
