Pala, Romina (2009) L'Universo paremìaco di Ziu Paddori di E.V. Melis alla luce di un'analisi semantico-pragmatica. Doctoral Thesis.
The analysis of proverbs and idioms found in the comedy written by Efisio Vincenzo Melis in the south Sardinian variant (“campidanese”), characterized by a pragmatic approach (but taking into account semantic and, if necessary, phonetic-etymological aspects of language as well), allowed firstly to show the real communicative intent of the speaker concealed in each proverb or idiom as a speech act, and secondly to reveal an unexpected persuasive energy interweaved in the comic drama, which is also interesting from a socio-linguistic point of view. This study involves various disciplines where linguistics detains the principal role, able to catch the attention of philology and literary scholars (or anthropology ones) as a useful parameter of investigation to reveal further aesthetic aspects of language. The work is divided in two main parts: the first one has a theoretical nature (chapters I and II) while the second has an applicative one (chapter III); conclusions are developed in chapter IV. The first chapter shows the history of paremiological studies mainly from a semantic point of view, while in the second one the analysis adopts a pragmatic development. Chapter III shows how the interpolation of the theoretical knowledge developed in the previous chapters comes alive in the analysis of Sardinian idioms and proverbs as speech acts.
