    Abstract Prince Louis Lucien Bonaparte (1813–1891) was an important pioneer in the field of Basque, English, Italian and Sardinian dialectology, who deserves a much better treatment than what he has received in modern books of history of linguistics. The main aim of this research is to give more accurate information on this subject.
  • Tra latino epigrafico e sardoromanzo: sulla datazione di alcuni sviluppi fonetici

    Abstract The importance of inscriptional material in the study of Vulgar Latin and Romance linguistics is well known. This is true in the case of Sardinia, too: the history and the chronology of some phonetic developments of the Sardinian language (e.g., Lat. qu, gu > b(b); the prosthesis of i- before s- + consonant) can be better explained with the help of Latin inscriptional sources discovered in the island.
