    Actually, here's the thing:

    From a traditionally technical standpoint, if your typeface italics is just a slanted version of your regular weight, it's not italics but a "slant" or "oblique" weight,

    and it's considered italics when the characters are different like in Source Sans.

    I mean, that definition isn't adhered to rigidly these days, we often just refer to all slanted weights as italics.
