Minority languages and language contact

The research group investigates the German minority languages (Cimbrian, Mòcheno and others) and the other German, Italian, Ladin and Slovene varieties present in the so-called Triveneto area in the Northeast of Italy. The group analyses the structure and the evolution of these varieties, with special attention to the language contact between them.
