The course aims to highlight the importance of concepts like 'langue' and 'parole' and their application to Italian linguistic material in order to examine, also for educational purposes, convergences and divergences between Italian language system ('langue') and its concrete realizations ('parole') in texts of various kinds.

The course focuses on the concepts of 'langue' and 'parole' and their application, also for educational purposes, to texts of various kinds. The two concepts, indeed, allow to identify convergences and divergences between Italian language system ('langue') and its concrete realizations ('parole'). In particular three aspects will be taken into consideration – potential valency vs. actually realized verbal valency in different contexts (actants' reduction and increase), canonical sentence structure vs. informationally marked sentences (cleft sentence and dislocated sentences), syntactic uses vs. communicative uses of punctuation (the case of the full stop) – which will allow, through the analysis of concrete examples, to show on the one hand how it is possible not to activate all of the potentials provided by language system ('langue'), and on the other hand how it is possible to overcome these potentials in concrete use by giving rise to new linguistic realities within language system or, in any case, to expressive effects not indifferent from the communicative point of view.

Lessons will be both theoretical and practical. In addition to frontal lessons, the course involves students' active participation not only as for the analysis of examples based on theoretically treated arguments, but also as for the carrying out of short exercises, designed to consolidate the knowledge acquired as well as to be used as proposals for educational activities in the teaching practice of the Italian language.
