NUNEZ MENDEZ, Eva  y  CHAKERIAN, Raven. Comparative-linguistic study between sicilian and spanish languages. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2012, n.25, pp. 249-273. ISSN 0716-5811.

This study proposes a linguistic-comparative analysis of both Spanish and Sicilian. While numerous linguistic studies have been done on Romanic languages, very few deal with Sicilian, isolated as a dialect of Italian. According to some linguists, Sicilian, as well as Sardinian (spoken in Sardinia), is not a dialect but an independent language per se. It lost its language status when the Italian parliament decided to assign a national language. This research, independently of Sicilian being a language or a dialect, analyses the most important phonetic, lexical, spelling and morphological differences with his sister-language, Spanish. At the same time, some parallelisms with Italian and Latin will be presented to understand better the linguistic evolution of Sicilian. Therefore, our main goal lies on contributing to the analytical cannon of studies in both Romanic languages and dialects, and on bringing up the importance of Sicilian, which has received very little attention in the field of linguistic.

Palabras clave : Sicilian; Sicilian linguistic variation; history of Sicilian; dialect; language.
