Abstract

This paper presents a new diachronic corpus of the Italian language, i.e., CODIT (COrpus Diacronico dell’ITaliano ‘Diachronic corpus of Italian’). After a description of the corpus design, the second part of the article is devoted to show possible applications of the corpus in the morphological field, specifically in the domain of evaluative morphology. We highlight the corpus’ strengths and limitations through the diachronic analysis of two affixes, i.e., sopra- and -oide. The study contributes to shed light on the dynamism of evaluative morphology by focusing on the loss of the intensification function suffered by sopra- and the emergence of an approximating value that currently affects -oide.
Articolo in rivista - Articolo scientifico
Cet article présente un nouveau corpus diachronique de la langue italienne : CODIT (COrpus Diacronico dell’ITaliano « Corpus diachronique de l’italien »). Après une description du corpus, la deuxième partie de l’article est consacrée à montrer les applications du corpus dans le domaine morphologique, en particulier dans le domaine de la morphologie évaluative. Nous soulignons les forces et les limites du corpus à travers l’analyse diachronique de deux affixes, sopra- ‘sur-’ et -oide ‘-oïd’. L’étude contribue à éclairer le dynamisme de la morphologie évaluative en s’intéressant à la perte de la fonction d’intensification subie par sopra- et à l’émergence d’une valeur d’approximation qui affecte actuellement -oide.
