We would like to invite papers focused on some area of Romance Lingui=
stics and
which bear on one (or more) of the following theoretical issues:
 The empirical motivation for the choice between a derivational an=
d a repre-
sentational approach in phonology and syntax;
 The nature of the output conditions in phonology and syntax: Whic=
h condi-
tions apply at the interface levels? Which conditions are defined on =
the single
steps of the derivation or on single levels of representation? Are ec=
onomy con-
ditions exclusively defined as `optimality' requirements on derivatio=
ns or may
they also assume the form of more complex conditions on the interface=
 Movement as `last resort': Which kind of features are admitted as=
mate `morphological' features triggering movement? To which extent ca=
n lin-
guistic variation be reduced to parameters concerning the mapping int=
o PF? How
is the distinction between `strong' and `weak' features to be underst=
ood? Which
kind of evidence is available to the child in order to fix the parame=
ters go-
verning the different types of mapping?
