Primi influssi culturali italo-veneti sull'inglese : la testimonianza dei venezianismi in Florio, Coryate e Jonson
MetadataShow full item record
This article demonstates that the earliest body of Italianisms in English, in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, was in large measure of Venetian origin. After establishing and dating the fifty Venetianisms that entered English in this period the study goes on to analyse Venetian lexical influence in John Florio's Italian-English dictionaries (1598 and 1611), in Thomas Coryate's travel book (the "Crudities") (1611) and in Ben Jonson's play "Volpone" (1607) set in Venice.
