Accarisi, Albert

, a native of Cento in the duchy of Ferrara, lived in the sixteenth century. He published in 1545, a “Vocabulary, Grammar, and Orthography of the Vulgar Tongue,” which Fontanini praises very highly, but is wrong in supposing it the first Italian vocabulary, Lucilio Minerbi having published a Vocabulary from Boccacio in 1535, and Fabricio Luna another in 153ft. Accarisi also wrote “Observations on the vulgar Tongue,” which were printed by Sansovino in 1562, 8vo, with other observations on the same subject by Bembo, Gabriello, Fortunio, and others. 1
