Series Title: Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 1
Description:

The volumes Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory: Selected papers
from ‘Going Romance’
contain the selected papers of the Going Romance
conferences, a major European annual discussion forum for theoretically
relevant research on Romance languages.

This volume assembles a significant number of selected papers that were
presented at the 21st edition of Going Romance, which was organized by the
Chair of Romance Linguistics of the University of Amsterdam in December
2007. The range of languages (both standard and non-standard varieties)
analyzed in this volume is quite significant: Catalan, French, Italian,
European and Brazilian Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish. The volume is
quite representative of the spread of the variety of research carried out
nowadays on Romance languages within theoretical linguistics and shows the
vitality of this research.
