Most data are presented through tables that make the book easy to understand also for people who are not used to read (or speak) the Veneto/Venetian language. The tables also provide a quick overview of the language variation, while examples illustrate the actual usage. Notes give some specific information about the main varieties, while footnotes provide references for a theoretical framework and comparison with other languages.
