Commentary

The material is organised geographically:
1) The Lugano and Ticino zone, with detection and solution of the basic problems (pala, terms in -alos/-ala, forms in -ui and -ai);
2) The Diubiasca Valley, which name is continued in the modern Giubiasco, and the canton of Grigioni;
3) The zone in the south of Lugano, from Lecco until Milan and Novara, and from there until Lake D'Aorta and Ornavasso;
4) The area near Lake Garda.
Some of the interpretations are still valid today.
