Quotation Rainer, Franz. 2016. I nomi d'azione in -era del corso e del sardo. Rivista italiana di dialettologia 40, 131-150.




Specialists of Corsican and Sardinian have claimed that action nouns in -era contain a suffix imported from Italy or Spain. In the present paper I try to show that this cannot be correct and that the the suffix either derives from Latin -aria in a phonologically irregular way or from a substrate language.
