This volume is the first comprehensive handbook on Ladin linguistics. Ladin ("ladino brissino-tirolese" in Italian) is a group of varieties belonging to Rhaeto-Romance and spoken in North-eastern Italy. The volume consists of 18 chapters divided into three sections: 1. history and description of the internal linguistic properties of the Ladin varieties; 2. sociolinguistics and normalisation processes of Ladin; 3. tools for documenting and studying the Ladin varieties.Since this is the first handbook entirely dedicated to this language group, it aims both at a description that covers all the traditional topics and at an overview of the most recent approaches to the study and the preservation of the Ladin varieties within a changing world.
