Abstract

Book reviews 265 masculine in the plural, we note the symbol at the end of this entry: Eco maschile: Sı` (informal writing) Sı` (oral speech) No (formal writing) (64). Another area of frequent disagreement, one less amenable to playfulness perhaps, is the question of professional titles for women. This is still a relatively new field in Italy today. For example, Novelli shows how Ilda Boccassini, who works for the public prosecutor’s office of Milan, is referred to in three different ways in news- papers: una giudice, una donna giudice, una giudic(h)essa. Novelli explains the rea- soning behind each and offers the following options: Avvocatessa, giudicessa, medichessa NO (in writing) NO (in oral speech) (L’) avvocata, (la) giudice, (la) medica, (la) dottoressa, (la) poeta, (la) direttrice SI (in writing) SI (in oral speech) Donna giudice, donna poliziotto, donna sindaco (o giudice donna, poliziotto donna, sin- daco donna) NO (in writing) NO (in oral speech) (69) Silverio Novelli’s Si dice? Non si dice? Dipende is now in its third edition. Small wonder if we consider that this guide is indeed practical, enlightening and highly entertaining.
