L’“ibrido gergo della moda” nei dizionari italiani della prima metà del Novecento
This chapter investigates the underexplored field of the language of fashion in Italian dictionaries, focusing on the first half of the twentieth century. In particular, due to the volatility of this type of lexis and to its domain-specific nature, the chapter focuses on neologisms and specialised vocabulary. Because of the crucial role played by Fascism in the period examined, lexical inventories with xenophobic connotations are also analysed.
