Bernardino Ciambelli : auteur-journaliste et témoin linguistique de l'évolution de l'italien en Amérique du Nord : 1880-1914

Abstract : At the end of the 19th century, millions of Italians left Italy for the United States in pursuit of American Dream. Coming from all the regions of the country, speaking their own dialects, these people settled down together and founded the communities commonly known as the Little Italies. In these districts where they could find all that they needed, a cultural life also developed. Author of acclaimed popular novels, Bernardino Ciambelli, was born in Italy in 1862, and had migrated to New York in the 1880s. Basing on three of his novels, we try to identify what language was used to address these populations. In a time when the Italian language was still recent, considering also the context of mass migration and the influences of the English-speaking environment, the purpose of this research is to identify the evolutions of the literary language in America.
