Often, the image of the Italian family seems frozen in the national media, never moving beyond the stereotype of the poor, immigrant family gathered around the table eating spaghetti, and of course, the image of the mafia family continues to infiltrate the national media - solidifying Italian culture and history into very definite stereotypes.In Life Al Dente, Gina Cascone plays with these images as she presents a different chapter in Italian-American history, the move of the family from ethnic urban neighborhoods to the suburbs.
Recently, I received a review copy of The English-Italian-Sicilian Dictionary written by ICF member Nick Scianna.He notes "This dictionary has been designed with Italian-Americans in mind.This dictionary is unique for many reasons: it is the first to encompass English, Italian and Sicilian; Italian and Sicilian words are accented so they can be pronounced correctly; nouns are identified as masculine or feminine, so the proper article can be used; and all the words are identified as parts of speech."The dictionary comes on CD-ROM and contains over 10, 000 words.It also includes interesting articles on culture and language, such as "The Italian-Americans", "The Italian Language" and "Sicily."It would serve as useful reference for Italian-Americans and those interested in language studies.
