Il possessivo e gli avverbi di luogo nel fumetto italiano: dal progetto di ricerca all'uso pedagogico

Abstract : Since 2013, within the CAER Research Unit, we have been producing corpus of Disney comics (Topolino) and Italian Graphic Novels. A longitudinal study (30s, 90s, 21st Century) allows us to compare the Italian standard and the various regional achievements. The comic introduces a new class of written language that reproduces the speech and alters the classic dichotomy written vs. spoken (Gadet 2004: 98; Pietrini 2009). Dialogue in comics is enriched with oral representations rarely present in literary or print texts. We suggest the results of a diachronic, synchronous and contrastive study of the use of possessive and place adverbs related to demonstrative in the standard systems of Italian and French, validating the hypotheses considered in previous studies (Saffi 2012: 221-234; Culoma Sauva 2015: 49-56). The aim is to propose the physiognomy of the Italian in relation to the explicit and implicit brand of ownership and the most recurring substitution strategies, including the reflexive solution. In fact, what is distinguished is the part of activity that is opposite to passivity: the power of animation will then be at the center of our interest. We also look at the results of the use of place adverbs for demonstrative and propose the hypothesis of an evolutionary movement of the conception of person and space in contemporary Italian (Saffi 2010). Finally, we present the use of comic book as an inverse pedagogy tool (Sams & Bergmann 2014) in our Italian language instruction addressed to three-year graduate.
