Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Genoese is a dialect of the Ligurian language, the one spoken in Genoa. Ligurian is listed by Ethnologue as a language in its own right, of the Romance branch, and not to be confused with the ancient Ligurian language. Like the languages of Lombardy, Piedmont, and surrounding regions, it is of Gallo-Italic derivation. In its differences from standard Italian, Genoese is somewhat similar to French. The language is far from dying out. While most remaining speakers of it are elderly, many young people still speak the language. Further, there are several associations dedicated to keeping the language alive. One such association is O Castello in Chiavari, Genoa, Italy.
