Main article: Syntactic gemination Word-initial consonants are geminated after certain vowel-final words in the same prosodic unit. There are two types of triggers of initial gemination: some unstressed particles, prepositions, and other monosyllabic words, and any oxytonic polysyllabic word.
Gemination cued by final stressed vowels, however, is transparently phonological. Syntactic gemination is the normal native pronunciation in Central Italy both "stress-induced" and "lexical" and Southern Italy only "lexical" , including Sicily and Corsica France.
Main article: Regional Italian The above IPA symbols and description refer to standard Italian, based on a somewhat idealized version of the Tuscan-derived national language.
As is common in many cultures, this single version of the language was pushed as neutral, proper, and eventually superior, leading to some stigmatization of varying accents. Television news anchors and other high-profile figures had to put aside their regional Italian when in the public sphere.
The variety is still not represented in its wholeness and accents from the South are maybe to be considered less popular, except in shows set in the South and in comedy, a field in which Naples, Sicily and the South in general have always been present. Though it still represents the basics for the standard variety, the loosened restrictions have led to Tuscan being seen for what it is, just one dialect among many with its own regional peculiarities and qualities, many of which are shared with Umbria, Southern Marche and Northern Lazio.
In Tuscany though not in standard Italian, which is derived from, but not equivalent to, Tuscan dialect , voiceless stops are typically pronounced as fricatives between vowels.
In nonstandard varieties of Central and Southern Italian, some stops at the end of a syllable completely assimilate to the following consonant. Sometimes this is also used in written language, e. The various Tuscan , Corsican and Central Italian dialects are, to some extent, the closest ones to Standard Italian in terms of linguistic features, since the latter is based on a somewhat polished form of Florentine. Main article: Phonological development Very little research has been done on the earliest stages of phonological development in Italian.
See the main article on phonological development for a description of first year stages. Many of the earliest stages are thought to be universal to all infants. Phoneme inventory[ edit ] Word-final consonants are rarely produced during the early stages of word production.
Consonants are usually found in word-initial position, or in intervocalic position. A preference for a front place of articulation is present.
