I own a book by Giuseppe Peano where some notes were written in Italian by the previous owner. However I can't read one of those.


I just know that the note starts with (1), that the underlined word is formale. I also recognise morfologia and linguistico.

Edit: The first line is "Doppio senso del termine formale" and mean "double meaning of the term formal" (@Charo)

    Welcome to Italian.SE! The first line says "Doppio senso del termine formale", that is, double meaning of the term formal. In the second line, I only recognize "de forma" (from form) and "morfologia".

  • That's a good starting point, thank you very much!

    Under “senso” there is an “a” and under it a “b”, followed by something that seems to be in “Latino sine flexione” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latino_sine_flexione).

    Blatantly off-topic, but it says “tracta de forma de vocabulo linguistico” (in LsF), with added “morfologia” (in Italian) in parentheses.

    Yes it is also what I just find out, indeed the last part appears to be off-topic, of course I did not know that when posting

1 Answer 1


After considering all the comments, I think I came up with the solution, which is half Italian and half Latino sine Flexione.

(1) Doppio senso del termine formale
             b) tracta de forma de vocabulo (morfologia)
