This book is the joint work of both authors. However, Martin Maiden is principally responsible for Chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 (1–28, 37–38), 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 (1–24), 15 (1–11, 17–57), 16, 20, 21 and 23 and the glossary, and Cecilia Robustelli for Chapters 6 (29–36), 14 (25–36), 15 (12–17), 17, 18, 19 and 22. Many native speakers and/or specialists in Italian linguistics were consulted – some of them will have felt that they were pestered – in the preparation of this book. A complete list of names would be lengthy, but our thanks go to all of them (and to a number of readers who sent us extremely useful comments on, and corrections to, the ﬁrst edition of this Grammar).
Invariant (invariante) – Having exactly the same form regardless of grammatical properties. , bar is the same in the plural as the singular, and the adjective rosa ‘pink’ is the same, regardless of whether the noun it modiﬁes is singular, plural, masculine or feminine). Irregular (irregolare) – Some grammatical form or structure is said to be ‘irregular’ when it deviates from otherwise general grammatical rules. The term is especially used of verbs, such as essere or potere or fare, many of whose forms are such that they seem idiosyncratic, and cannot be predicted by general rule.
Noun Phrase – see Phrase Object (oggetto) – A noun, noun phrase or pronoun, other than the subject, which is involved in or undergoes the state or action expressed by a verb. , the underlined elements in Paolo vede Gianni ‘P. ’, Gianni adora la matematica ‘G. adores mathematics’, Non li voglio ‘I don’t want them’. The preceding examples illustrate ‘direct objects’; the ‘indirect object’ (preceded by the preposition a, or represented by the pronouns gli, le, loro), typically represents the ‘recipient’ of some action, to whom/which or to for whom/which the action of the verb takes place.
