The debris of Latin litter the former territory of the Western Roman Empire as celestial bodies lie scattered throughout the solar system. History and politics have promoted some of these fragments to national tongues, the vehicles of government and the carriers of great literatures: these are the planets of the Romance system. But it has its asteroids too, the forms assumed by Latin in the narrow areas which never extended their boundaries: the dialects. The name must not mislead us: they too are languages, and man's creative instinct being what it is, they have their literatures. One such is presented in this book, both to linguists, interested in language as a mechanism; and to phoneticians, on the lookout for new sounds; and to men of letters, curious about literary work wherever it is found; and to poets, always able to learn from fresh poetic voices (even if these are muffled in translation): and finally even to tourists, hitherto unaware that in passing eastward over the River Livenza they have been crossing a frontier. D.B. Gregor was a professional teacher of classics and Romance languages. This work sits alongside his "Romagnol: Language and Literature" (9780902675124) and "Romontsch: Language and Literature (9780900891397)."

Over a period of over forty years, Geoffrey Leech has made notable contributions to the field of literary stylistics, using the interplay between linguistic form and literary function as a key to the ‘mystery’ of how a text comes to be invested with artistic potential. In this book, seven earlier papers and articles, read previously only by a restricted audience, have been brought together with four new chapters, the whole volume showing a continuity of approach across a period when all too often literary and linguistic studies have appeared to drift further apart. Leech sets the concept of ‘foregrounding’ (also known as defamiliarization) at the heart of the interplay between form and interpretation. Through practical and insightful examination of how poems, plays and prose works produce special meaning, he counteracts the ‘flight from the text’ that has characterized thinking about language and literature in the last thirty years, when the response of the reader, rather than the characteristics and meaning potential of the text itself, have been given undue prominence. The book provides an enlightening analysis of well-known (as well as less well-known) texts of great writers of the past, including Keats, Shelley, Samuel Johnson, Shaw, Dylan Thomas, and Virginia Woolf.
