Venetian Grammar / Gramŕtica Včneta
(by Michele Brunelli)

If dictionaries contain the ingredients to speak, a grammar-book is a collection of recipes. The Manuŕl Gramaticałe del Včneto e łe so Varianti - General Grammar Book of the Venetian/Veneto Language and its Varieties - is handbook to discover the "grammatical surprises" of the Veneto way of speaking. It is the first descriptive general grammar of the Venetian or Veneto language also written in Venetian. It is designed for natives and foreigners. For students and teachers.

Se i vocabołari i contien i ingredienti par parlar, un manual gramaticałe el xe un łibro de riçčte. El Manuŕl Gramaticale del Včneto e le so Varianti - Manuale Grammaticale del Veneto e le sue varianti - l'č un manual de consultaçion par conósar łe "maraveje gramaticałi" del parlar včneto. El xe ła prima gramŕtica descritiva zenerałe de Včneto o Łéngua Včneta e anca scrita in Včneto. L'č pensŕ par včneti e forčsti. Par studčnti e profesuri.

It is the outcome of a ten-year research: data gathered from day-to-day conversations, integrated with dictionaries and books about different Veneto varieties and enriched with comparisons with other languages and references for a deeper theoretical knowledge. It is a backup copy of the Veneto way of speaking.

Through a flexible orthography for a flexible pronunciation (how could a general grammar of Včneto be written only in the variety of Venice, in the Paduan variety or in the Belluno variety?), the book provides both an overview of the entire language and also a description of its local variations.

L'č el fruto de diexe ani de riçerche: dati ciapai dal parlar de ogni di, incroxai co diçionari e łibri de divčrse varianti včnete, confrontai co altre łéngue e integrai co riferiminti par studi pi aprofondii. Na memňria de backup che ła registra come che se conbina łe parňłe in včneto.

Doparando na grafia flesěbiłe par na parlada flesěbiłe (na gramŕtica de Včneto come podčveła čser scrita soło nte ła variante de Venčsia, nte ła varietŕ de Pŕdova o nte ła variante de Bełun?), el łibro el dŕ na vixion zenerałe de tuta ła łéngua e anca na descriçion de łe so variaçion locałi.

It can be read at different levels. The extensive use of examples and tables makes the book easy to understand also for people not familiar with this language. Notes highlight the main local varieties and provide references for further studies.
