Bardi dialect

Postby Lee123 » 02 Sep 2007, 20:45

My family are from Bardi. Now i'm booked in to do an Italian language course, but my mum says my grandmother didn't really understand Italian, as she and her family spoke a ''Bardi Piacenza'' dialect very unlike modern Italian.

My question is, is this correct? I hear the grammar is different also.Will I be understood speaking my new fancy Italian tongue in Bardi? the place I am thinking of moving to.. :lol:

Thanks again for your replies Lee

You should definitely not worry about that. Decades of TV watching put the kibosh on the daily use of dialects in Italy. Nowadays only people of a certain age maintain some fluency in what was once the local language, while younger people mostly communicate with others in a more or less standard form of Italian.

Are you sure? Ever been to Naples or Trieste? (just to mention two towns)
