Lombard today

Scriver Lombard is an important part of a linguistic project for the revitalization of Lombard. As a "dialectalised" language, discriminated against, stripped of its sociolinguistic history, and segragated mainly to the spoken domain, Lombard does not have a standard spelling system. Classical Milanese, possibly the only Lombard variety with a historic tradition, does not encompass all Lombard varieties, and has the disadvantage of having been developed as subordinate to the Tuscan system, and thus without appropriate consideration for the idiosyncratic morpho-phonology of Lombard varieties. It is for these reasons that the scriver lombard project was born.
