S: Language Varieties in the Catalano Family

FC: The Catalano Family: Our Language Heritage | By Laura Catalano

1: My rich language heritage dates back to my great grandmothers and grandfathers in Italy and Ireland in the mid/late nineteenth century. | My grandpa Catalano is from Calabria, Italy. | My grandma Catalano is from County Cork, Ireland.

2: Southern Calabria Italian Dialect | In Calabria, there are two dialects spoken. Anthony Catalano, my grandfather, is from southern Calabria, a dialect closely related to Sicilian.

3: The northern and southern dialects in Calabria vary from each other and from the "classic" Italian language. | EXAMPLE: "tomorrow" rumani: S.Calabrian crai/dumani: N.Calabrian domani: Italian

4: The "Southern Ireland" Accent | Trademarks of the "County Cork" accent, courtesy of Delores J. Seybold: - 'Sh' used instead of 's' - Putting words in phrases together - Some vocabulary words unique - High pitched intonation

5: A family's rich language heritage is what makes each family unique. | The Catalano Family: 1940s/50s
