In this paper we present a cross-genre study on word order variation in Italian based on automatically dependency–parsed corpora. A comparative analysis focused on dependency direction and dependency distance for major constituents in the sentence is carried out in order to assess the influence of both textual genre and linguistic complexity on the distribution of phenonemena of syntactic markedeness.
