Borsa Parole – A Market for Linguistic
This article describes a novel approach to linguistic field research consisting in exploiting the
self-regulation of a market for collecting data on language use. The market is conceived as an
output-agreement game with a purpose called Borsa Parole. The agreement can be traded with
by the players what makes it adjustable. Borsa Parole has been conceived and is deployed for a
linguistic study on the divergence of Italian dialects and vernaculars.
