Non è 'marchegiano', ma 'marchigiano'!

Il dialetto parlato in Corsica è il 'corso' no il 'corse'!

A Milano si parla il 'lombardo milanese'!

Diciamo che 'ciociaresco' vada bene, ma sarebbe più corretto dire 'ciociaro'!

Il 'trentinese' non so cosa voglia dire... forse volevi scrivere 'tarantino'?

Agree! Ma non ci andrei così leggera col "ciociaresco". Ciociaro è ciociaro.

Al contrario, il "corse" lo accetterei visto che la Corsica è francese e lì lo chiamano così.

Some of these are languages, not dialects!
