Abstract: This working paper aims at showing the design of a textual and linguistic analysis focusing on the specific field of food in the Piedmont literature. Texts studied are stored in an online repository, i.e., FABB, that collects Piedmont literature as well as some popular tales, short narratives, novels, lyrics, interviews written in Piedmont from the beginning of the Twentieth Century. In addition, it considers a collection of fifty dialect poems by Giovanni Rapetti, a contemporary Piedmont poet. In this study, a sample of all these work has been analysed through the definition of a glossary built on the corpus collected in FABB repository and gives advices on its utilisation. The main issue of the glossary description concerns the definition, in a clear and univocal way, of the criteria chosen for its redaction, in order to realise a coherent pattern useful for further studies. The goal of this work is twofold: to display the completion of a useful linguistic research tool; and to investigate the food theme within the corpus of Piedmont literature contained in the FABB repository.

Keywords: glossary, lemmatization, textual analysis, food, Piedmont literature

[1] Il presente lavoro è strutturato in due parti: la prima, fino al paragrafo 5 compreso, è stata curata da Grazia Biorci e presenta la struttura e i criteri che hanno animato la redazione del glossario stesso. La seconda, dal paragrafo 6 al paragrafo 10 compreso è stata curata da Greta Falavigna che si è occupata di descrivere il contenuto del glossario proponendo una breve sintesi sia del contesto storico-sociale del primo Novecento sia degli autori considerati. In questa parte, l’autrice propone alcune considerazioni sui testi presenti nel corpus FABB con l’obiettivo di mostrare l’utilizzo e l’utilità dello strumento del glossario.
