Chapter Summary

This appendix presents notes on Gramsci's influence in Italy and in the English-speaking world, emphasising aspects that are especially relevant to scholars in linguistic disciplines. While reviewing some of the most significant secondary literature, he discusses the shift that has occurred, from an early period with only a very small number of works by Italian linguists, to the recent flourishing of publications by cultural and social theorists, philosophers of language, and linguists of various persuasions. It deals mainly with material published in Italian and English before 2007 - the year that marked the seventieth anniversary of Gramsci's death, and which saw the emergence of significantly new developments in Gramscian studies, especially in Italy. Eventually, this year may prove to have a periodicising value, the post-2007 period witnessing the consolidation of a new and different phase in Gramscian studies, though it is perhaps too early to express conclusive views on this point.

Keywords: English-speaking world; Gramsci's influence; Italian linguists; Italy; philosophers of language
