Drawing on a variety of sources (street signs, postcards, memoirs and "spontaneous" poetry, oral literature), the author examines the modifications of a particular language (in this case, Italian) in a context of emigration (in this case, to the United States). Grammar and literature are affected at all levels as a result of a new and complex cultural, psychological and linguistic condition.
