Reviews

“Nina Rubino’s volume Trilingual Talk in Sicilian-Australian Migrant Families is thus a welcome addition detailing at an idiolect level the language practices that have accompanied such processes. … the volume can be considered a valuable contribution to the study of patterns of language use among Sicilian Australians and does suggest themes for further investigation that could perhaps lead to a richer analysis of the topic.” (Gaetano Rando, Italian American Review, Vol. 6 (1), Winter, 2016)
