The paper provides the edition, with a linguistic commentary, of a document
that dates back approximately to 1275. It was written in Chioggia
by a local administrator of a monastery and it can be useful to improve
our knowledge about the medieval vernacular of that town. The modern
dialect of Chioggia shows Venetian and Paduan features that could be interpreted
in two ways: either the result of its Venetianization, or the effect
of the influence of the mainland dialects on an early Venetian variety. The
witness of this text seems to enhance the hypothesis of an early resemblance
between the vernaculars of Chioggia and Venice.
