Marchenko E.G. Spontaneous Spoken Language Imitation in the Comedies by 16-century Siena-born Authors
The article focuses on the spoken language imitation in the comedies by 16-century Siena-born authors (A. Piccolomini and other Intronati Academy members). The linguistic tools used for the written transmission of the features of spoken usage are examined. The morphological and syntactical examples associated with non-formal oral discourse are given. It is concluded that most of the parlato recitato phenomena are pragmatically marked.
