Drawing from Bucholts (2000) statement that all transcripts take sides, favoring a specific speaker, the present paper seeks to give voice to the dialectal speakers without imposing on them the stereotyping (Jefferson, 1996) or “stigma” that often characterizes the transcription of vernacular varieties. In order to remain true to the speakers, to update and represent modern ways of writing Romanesco (which has not produced a recognizable set of literary production during the last century), a corpus of linguistic data is being collected from Social Media (like Facebook and Twitter), whose main vehicular language is Romanesco. In addition, new wave poets collectives, “Poeti der Trullo”, “Poesie in Romanesco” and the like, who are very popular online and offline, and who are publishing both online and on paper, are being taken into account. The outcome of this analysis will help Conversation Analysts, who deal with dialectal varieties and code switching, to go beyond negative stereotyping and give true voice to the participants in their corpora of spontaneous interactions.
