Introduction

Friulian, Ladin, and Romansch are separate languages (R. A. Hall, Jr. 1978, personal communication). F.B. Agard considers it to be structurally closer to Italian than to Romansch (personal communication 1981). Most speakers know Standard Italian. Some are cultivating Friulian as a literary language. In the area of Gorizia all the Slovenes speak it as a second or third language. Germans in the area also speak it. Regional pride. NT 1972.
