      What kind of relationships are in play between spoken and written language? It is frequently assumed that the second is simply an extension – more formal and precise – of the first... forgetting that many of the world’s spoken languages have never fully developed written forms. Today, meanwhile, the difference between spoken and written language is clearly blurring... just think about the use of digital messaging and social networks. Is it true that speaking – the primary code – is degrading the lucidity of writing? Using historical accounts, theoretical hints and immediately understandable examples, Luca Serianni guides the reader on an exploration of the different forms that written text has assumed over time, depending on the emotions, information and concepts needing to be conveyed. In recent years, this age-old uninterrupted dialogue between speech and script – as Giuseppe Antonelli illustrates in his introduction – has led to the spread of the kind of Italian used in digital communications: e-talian.
