Campidanese (Campidanesu)

The Sardinian language can be divided into the following main subregional language groups clearly identified by isogloss bundles:

    * Sardinian proper, characterised by a plural in -s and definite articles derived from the Latin IPSUM
          o Northern, the most conservative dialect
                + sas limbas 'the languages'
                + sas abbas 'the waters'
          o Central, considered to be a transitional dialect between Northern and Southern Sardinian
                + is limbas 'the languages'
                + is abbas 'the waters'
          o Southern, more influenced by continental Italian dialects:
                + is linguas 'the languages'
                + is acuas 'the waters'

To find foods and foods and food-related items in in Campidano you may search by any of the following terms:
Campidanais Campidanaise Campidanes Campidanese Campidanesisch Campidanesische Campidanesu Italian Italy Sarda Sarde Sardegna Sardinia Sardinian Sardo Sardu

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages. The traveller in Sardinia may not be precisely certain which language is in use, and can search using more general terms such as 'Italian'' or "Sardinian".

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of aubergine, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'Aubergine campidanese' and then click on 'Translate from English'.

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches, such as 'Sardinian' should result in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
