Title: Romance Syntax, Semantics and L2 Acquisition: Selected papers from the 30th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages, Gainesville, Florida, February 2000
Edited By: CarolineR.Wiltshire
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 216
Description:

This volume contains a selection of refereed and revised papers, originally presented at the 30th Linguistic Symposium on Romance
Languages, representing the areas of syntax, semantics, their interfaces, and second language acquisition. The topics addressed include movement (both wh- and head-movement), control, issues of second language acquisition related to the Determiner Phrase, the effect of word order and syntactic simplification in second language acquisition, adverbials, syntactic constraints on access to lexical structure, a semantic characterization of the subjunctive in Spanish, and impersonal constructions and impersonal reflexive pronouns. The papers in this volume not only discuss issues related to most of the major Romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Rumanian and
Spanish) and a Portuguese Creole, but also include comparisons with languages from other families (Marathi, Bulgarian, Polish and
Slovenian). This collection of papers illustrates the richness in the field of Romance linguistics and the value of cross-linguistic research and multi-modular approaches.
