Abstract

The paper is inspired by the theoretical framework provided by Auer’s (2005) typology of “dialect/standard constellations”, which aims to detect common dynamics in the current processes of dialect/standard convergence in Europe. Some adjustments to Auer’s proposal will be suggested to better suit it to a specific sociolinguistic situation: that involving Italian and Piedmontese in the north-western Italian Region of Piedmont. A set of linguistic features will be analyzed with the aim to depict dynamics of intralinguistic and interlinguistic convergence related to the ongoing standardization processes in Italian and Piedmontese.
