PKEFACE 



IT is the aim of this work to meet the long-felt need of an 
Italian and English dictionary, based on the foremost recent 
authorities, and embodying a copious selection of modern words, as 
well as important obsolete ones, presented in a practical and yet 
etymological form. 

The main features of the work are explained below. 

I. THE ITALIAN -ENGLISH PART 

The chief authority followed has been Petrocchi's N~ovo 
dizionario scolastico. But at its side have been consulted especially 
Petrocchi's Dizionario universale delta lingua italiana^ Rigutini- 
Fanfani's Vbcabolario italiano^ Zambaldi's Vocabolario etimo- 
logico italiano, and Baretti's, Millhouse's, and James- Grassi's well- 
known dictionaries. 

The vocabulary embodies a considerably larger number of 
Italian words than ordinary dictionaries of a similar size, and many 
more than Rigutini-Fanfani's large Italian dictionary. Almost 
every modern word contained in Petrocchi's c scholastic ' dictionary 
is quoted, and also a large number of rare or obsolete words, 
especially such as are indispensable in reading Italian classics. 
These are mainly from Petrocchi's c lingua fuori d' uso, 5 and are 
marked with a dagger (|). It should be noted here, however, that 
the obsolete abstracts in -tate, -tade, and -tute^ -tude, as identical 
with the modern in -tct and -, have been consistently omitted as 
unnecessary repetitions. 

Irregular forms of inflection are noted with their words, and 
also largely as titles in their alphabetical order. The full* conjuga 
tion of each simple irregular verb is given below the verb, and the 
conjugation of their compounds by proper reference, either directly 
or by pointing out the composition. 

Idiomatic phrases are usually given only when not self- 
explanatory ; and, on the whole, space for idioms has been econo 
mized in favor of a large vocabulary. 



IV PKEFACE 

The pronunciation is marked principally by subscript signs 
(as explained p. vi), such a method being the most direct, unequiv 
ocal, and free from confusion. 

Etymologically related words are grouped together, observing 
the requirements of convenience and absolute alphabetical sequence. 
Such grouping will serve the threefold purpose of both etymological 
and mnemonic association, of space-saving, and of facilitating the 
search for words, by enabling the student to pass easily from one 
group to another. 

The division of the group-words is made chiefly with reference 
to Italian spelling and pronunciation, and to space-saving. This is 
done with some disregard of etymological division, which could not 
be consistently carried out. 

The words are not grouped with reference to immediate deriva 
tion from each other, which would have necessitated very numerous 
groups, but simply with reference to near relationship of some kind. 
Hence the etymological word of the group is not necessarily the 
actual source-word from which the others are derived, though it 
may be so, and, as a rule, comes nearer to it than the others. 

The derivation of current Italian words, when known, is 
briefly denoted in brackets after each word occurring singly, or 
after that word in the group which comes nearest the etymological 
source. This latter word is divided by a heavy hyphen ( - ), or, in 
case of compounds, by double heavy hyphens ( = ); and, besides, if 
not found first in the group, preceded, for ease of reference, by 
double bars ( || ). Other words are divided by slight single or (for 
compounds) double hyphens ( -, or =). These conventional division- 
marks can cause no confusion, as Italian ordinarily uses no hyphens 
at all. 

When the derivation of a word is unknown or questionable, 
this is denoted by an interrogation-mark above or before the sug 
gested etymology. Suggestions are purposely rare. Besides the 
more immediate source of the Italian word, sometimes a remoter 
source is also indicated in parenthesis, especially when this may 
help to explain the present meaning, or to suggest a familiar form. 
To aid non-classical students, the meaning of source-words, when 
differing from the immediate sense of the Italian word, is given. 
For the same reason Greek words are transliterated. For rare and 
obsolete words (those marked f) no etymologies are given, except 
for special reasons, as when they underlie current forms. 



PREFACE 



English cognates^ from whatever source, when not evident at 
first sight, are in SMALL CAPITALS, but only once, and under the Italian 
head- word, provided the English cognate occurs there, and in a form 
also sufficiently suggestive for derivative words. 

IL THE ENGLISH - ITALIAN PART, 

though more immediately based on previous works of a similar 
scope and purpose, yet, like the Italian-English part, has indications 
of pronunciation (cf. page iv), and etymological connections (by 
grouping). Light hyphens (-) are here conventional, while the 
heavy ( - ) stand for English hyphens between the members of a 
composite word. The requirements of the varied utterance and 
accentuation of English words have here necessitated a less rigorous 
grouping of kindred words than in the Italian-English part ; and, 
as the source of the Germanic elements of English is unfamiliar to 
the ordinary student, no etymologies (except as suggested by the 
grouping and by the frequent Italian cognates) are attempted. 

Also here a large number of obsolete words (marked f) are 
given as an aid to the Italian student of English classics. 



Dr. Giuseppe Bico has assisted me in revising the manuscript 
of the entire Italian-English part, and my pupil, Mr. J. L. Gerig, by 
much secretarial work, as well as aid in reading the proofs. 

It is in the hope that this dictionary, though imperfect, may 
contribute its share to a scholarly study of a language whose liter 
ary treasures, besides their intrinsic value, have had so great an 
influence on the shaping of English literature, that it is now sub 
mitted to the public.

PRONUNCIATION 



A. SIGNS OF ITALIAN" PRONUNCIATION 



> know Italian sounds well, a correct pronunciation of the examples in thy 
lists below will be of service. 

1. Accent-marks. Though usage varies, Italian is ordinarily written without any 
other accent-sign than the grave ( % ) for accented final vowels (whether pronounced 
close or open). Accent-signs on other vowels are therefore conventional in this work, 
to mark the accented vowel, and, in part, its pronunciation. 

2. The Italian accent is less energetic than the English, and all syllables are 
ittered more evenly. 

3. Silent letters are in italics (e.g., i in agio, g in le^no). 

VOWELS 

4. Italian vowels are uttered with a clear, full sound, and rarely dimmed like the 
English unaccented vowels. 

5. An accent-vowel is ordinarily long before another vowel, or one consonant, or a 
mute + r, I ; otherwise short. Unaccented vowels are short. 

6. List of the vowels with pronunciation signs : 

ACG. UNACC. LONG SHOUT 

a a = a in ask (Webster) ; 5 : am.a ; pall a 

e e = e " bey (without vanish : French I) ; 5 : xsxene ; detto 

ie = e met; 5: texna; terra 

i = i " police; 5 : * . . . . vidi; illico 

6 o = o " no (without vanish) ; 5 : loro ; sotto 

6 = o " orb; 5: dro; porto 

OL n u " rue; 5 : tmo ; usiirpo 

y = Ital. i before vowel (cf. below) : yard 

vowei-coinponnds : each vowel has its own sound, though un 
accented i, u are lightly uttered : . . . . leoae ; fiore ; cudre 

CONSONANTS 

7. Consonants omitted below are pronounced as in English (unless in italics, 3), 
observing that d, t are dental (formed near the base of the upper teeth) ; and that in 
uttering double consonants the tongue-contact is protracted (as if to allow for two 
consonants) before it is broken. 

8. List of consonants with their pronunciation signs : 
e = k: caro 



= ch in chest: . . -eera 

. . . gorgo 

. . . gemte 

1 = Fy: .... 011, SLglto 



s s in so , . . . SHOMO 

s = s in rose (z) : . rosa, s*barra 

s = sh in shall: . . scelta, oasoia 



naziouc 



z = Eng. dz: . . . zero, mamzo 



n riy : . . . . ie^/no (Un'yo) 

JT, dental and trilled (sharply as initial or after consonant) : pardla, ricco, padre
