What is grammatical role of e word in Emiliano and Romagnolo languages? Notice the following excerpt:

> La léngua emiliâna-rumagnōla l’é parlêda int l’Emélia-Rumâgna, int la pêrt ed sōvra dal Mêrchi (pruvîncia ed Pêṣer) e in Tuscâna (pruvîncia ed Mâsa-Carēra). L’a ‘s divèd in dō pêrti: l’Emigliàn e al Rumagnōl. A’s pèinsa che la divisiòun tr’al dō sesiòun descréti sōvra la sia sucèsa a l’inési dal Medioēv, quând i Bizantèin gvernêven la Rumâgna e i Longobêrd l’Emélia.

I don't have any direct knowledge of the language(s), but from the excerpt you provide, "e" seems to mean "and", i.e., it is a coordinating conjunction: "e in Tuscâna" (and in Tuscany), "l’Emigliàn e al Rumagnōl" (Emiliano and Romagnolo), "i Bizantèin gvernêven la Rumâgna e i Longobêrd l’Emélia" (the Byzantines ruled Romagna and the Langobards ruled Emilia)

    That's exactly it. It's a conjunction. :) – Alenanno Jul 9 '13 at 12:09
