The aim of Ferrara’s book is to provide readers and translators with a de- tailed dictionary of Italian dialectal, regional, and local expressions, and idioms. In the introduction, the author describes the genesis, aim of the study, and research methodology. He outlines the structure of the book, lists the abbreviations used throughout his work and provides the bibliography of the monolingual and bilingual dictionaries analysed. Ferrara’s introduction situates his work critically between lexicography and the vast area of study of Italian dialectology.
