Interfaces of information structure: Topic accent and prosodic structure / Claudia Crocco -- The prosodic annotation of C-ORAL-ROM and the structure of information in spoken language / Antonietta Scarano -- Universals of information structure / Lunella Mereu -- Grammar and information structure in italian and some of its dialects: Constructions with preposed infinitive: typological and pragmatic notes / Giuliano Bernini -- Negation and "focus clash" in Sardinian / Franck Floricic -- Do-support in a Sicilian variety, an Italian pseudo-cleft, and the packaging of information / Ignazio Mauro Mirto -- Clitics and anaphoric relations in informational patterning: a corpus driven research on spontaneous spoken Italian (C-ORAL-ROM) / Emanuela Cresti -- The informational structure and the scope of lexical modality in spoken Italian (C-ORAL-ROM) / Ida Tucci -- Diachronic aspects in Italian: On two functions of verb-subject order in Old Italian / Ludwig Fesenmeier -- Between thematicity and grammaticalisation: the diachronic rearrangement of information structure and the position of clitic pronouns in Italian / Shingo Suzuki -- Pragmatically oriented languages: Information structure in Slavic languages / Lucyna Gebert -- Position, function and interpretation of topics in Somali / Mara Frascarelli and Annarita Puglielli -- Some more aspects of information structure: Acquiring the grammar of topicality in L2 Italian: a comparative approach / Marina Chini -- Where does the difference lie? / Edoardo Lombardi Vallauri.
Summary: The volume presents recent results in the field of Information Structure based on research on Italian and Italian dialects, and on further studies on several typologically different languages. The central idea is that Information Structure is not an exclusive matter of syntax but an interface issue which involves the interplay of at least the phonological, morpho-syntactic and semantic-pragmatic levels of analysis. In addition, the volume is based on the study of actual language use and it adopts a cross-linguistic point of view.
