Abstract

The article intends to examine the word "myth" according two aspects, both linguistic and literary. Starting from the etymology of the noun and its use in the first attestations, the essay firstly focuses on its developments in phraseology and common saying (from “you are a myt” to “mythical”). In the second part, the essay provides a sample of the use of the noun within Italian literature, both in journalistic and musical contexts, from its origins to present days. Thus, the research aims to study the evolution of the word “myth” starting from its etymology up to the meanings that nowadays the linguistic community deals with in written, spoken and digital communication.
