Marchigiano dialect

Marchigiano refers to a tight cluster of local Romance speech types spoken in the central part of the region Marche, in Italy, in a zone which includes the provinces of Ancona and Fermo. It is one of the Central Italian dialect types, forms part of the typological continuum with Umbrian dialects and Tuscan. There are notable grammatical and idiomatic differences between Marchigiano and standard Italian language, but it is considered, along with the rest of Central Italian dialects, rather intelligible for a speaker of Standard Italian. In itself Marchigiano is not uniform from town to town, being divided in two main areas: The dialect of Ancona, to which the dialects of Osimo and Fabriano belong; the three areas of the Marchigiano dialect are united by some common features which distinguish the dialect from the other central Italian languages: The Italian words stressed on the penultimate syllable which end in no ni or ne undergoes apocope in the last syllable. So the word contadino becomes contadì, the word piccioni becomes picciò, the word cane becomes cà.

The Italian words which end in -aio change their last syllable in -aro. So the word fornaio becomes fornaro; the sound of the Italian words is changed to a simple. So the word figlio becomes fio; the final sound -o of the Italian words is changed to -u: fornaio > fornaru, figlio > fiiu. The infinitive of the Italian verbs loses the final sound -re: amare > amà, mettere > mette, morire > morì. The group ng undergoes assimilation to gn: mangiamo > magnamo. The third-person plural inflection is the same of the singular one. So the word ama can mean they love; the conjugation of to be and to have got at the present indicative tense in the two main dialects is as follows: The dialect of Ancona is spoken in the region of the town of Ancona, Porto Recanati, Osimo, Jesi and Falconara. This dialect's speakers always use the articles el unlike standard Italian which in some cases uses lo. Only the speakers of the towns which are closer to Macerata use the article lo as in Italian; these cities undergo other influences from Macerata's dialect because they are closer to it.

The dialect of Fabriano is spoken in the towns closer to it. Rhotacism occurs in this dialect; the dialect of Macerata is spoken in the Fermo's one. The speakers of Macerata, to say the, use lo. Rhotacism occurs. A lot of assimilations occur: nd > nn: mettendo > mettenno, mb > mm: gamba > gamma, nt > nd: pianta > pianda, mp > mb: campo > cambu, ld > ll: caldo > callu. There follows a list of nouns and other words from Marchigiano: ammò, bardasciu or vardasciu, bedollu or bidullu, brenciu or vrenciu, ciambottu or ciammottu, cuscì, lluccà, rosciu or rusciu, sbisgià or sbiscià, scì.
