    An Investigation of Hate Speech in Italian: Use, Identification, and Perception

    Silvio Cruschina and Chiara Gianollo (eds.)

    An Investigation of Hate Speech in Italian contributes to the investigation of hate speech by adopting the methodological and theoretical tools of linguistics. The aim of the book is to identify the common linguistic characteristics and features of hate speech in different domains of communication and to establish a set of criteria that can help distinguish between hate speech and freedom of expression. The chapters of this volume all focus on Italian, but the analyses, methodologies, and findings of the individual chapters can easily be extended to other languages for comparative and contrastive purposes.
