Basic training intended for students, graduated, PhD students and PhD in the humanities in linguistics, philology, and literature who wish to acquire essential skills for the use of the TLIO tools and for the writing of TLIO entries. The main requirement is familiarity with medieval texts written in different Italo-Romance linguistic varieties and with basic Italian lexicographic tools. The program includes a 5 day (from Monday to Friday) training period at the OVI Institute, the assignment of some TLIO entries, to be written with the help of the OVI online resources, and discussion of relevant issues that may emerge during revision of the entries. The training activity, which may lead to publication of the assigned entries, is not a trial period for employment, and does not provide reimbursement for travel and accommodation exspenses. To attend this course, which takes place in the fall/autumn (see below), please send a letter of interest to the attention of the OVI Director Dr.Paolo Squillacioti by the deadline indicated below and using the following procedure.
