The project ‘Quantification in Old Italian’ is funded by the DFG and investigates the system of quantifiers of Old Italian with respect to the syntactic and semantic behavior of quantifiers. The Old Italian system will be compared to Modern Standard Italian and to Modern Tuscan varieties. It will thus also contribute to understanding the relationship between diachronic and diatopic variation.
NEWS!!! The DFG has accepted our prolongation proposal. The project 'Quantification in Old Italian 2.0' has just started. Our research team will continue exploring the fascinating evolution of the quantification system from Old up to Renaissance Italian until March 2020. Stay tuned!
