Questioni lessicali ruzantiane

Andrea Cecchinato    



This short essay explores some lexical obscurities drawn from Ruzante’s works by trying to explain them from different perspectives: assessing their philological and linguistic plausibility, investigating their meaning, their etymology, and their possible semantic and phono-morphological drift. The debated cases were selected as examples of different types: very rare vernacular items, author’s coining and items that are certified by dubious manuscript lessons.

Keywords: Ruzante. Paduan vernacular. Lexical obscurities. Etymology. Meanings.

Language: it
