Abstract

The analysis of orthographic variation and the writing habit presented in this book represented a heuristic tool for the study of the sociolinguistic scenario of Roman Britain, sketching the different micro-histories of Latinization according to a new, ground-breaking, perspective. As a matter of fact, the assessment of the different orthographic variants may be revealing of the phenomena of language contact and interference; orthographic misspellings and idiosyncratic variants, which also varies according to the text type, writing materials, and writers, allows the sketch for different micro-histories of Latinization
