After a brief outline of the principal episodes in the external history and attempts at standardization, the chapter surveys the principal aspects of phonology, morphology and syntax of Sardinian and its dialects (notably Logudorese, Nuorese, and Campidanese). It covers: vowels systems; consonant systems; sandhi phenomena; stress and other suprasegmental features (including paragogic vowels); nominal and verbal inflectional morphology; word formation; the syntax of the nominal group and of the verbal group; auxiliary selection; the syntax of the clause and the basic properties of the clause; valency-changing operations; finite subordination; non-finite constructions (inlcuding finite marking on infinitives); information structure; illocutionary force.

Keywords:   Sardinian, Logudorese, Nuorese, Campidanese, phonology, morphology, syntax
