Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 313
Description:

The sixteen papers here united have been selected from the 38th Linguistic
Symposium of the Romance Languages held in Champaign-Urbana in 2008. The
papers, whose authors include both well-known researchers and younger
scholars, cover a broad and truly interdisciplinary range of topics in
phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and their interfaces. Among the
plethora of topics examined are stress in Quebec French, vowel deletion in
Tuscan Italian, bare singulars in Brazilian Portuguese, case in Romanian,
and hiatus in Argentine Spanish. The volume’s novelty is to extend the
traditional scope of linguistic inquiry to dynamic cognitive and societal
connections between Romance and other languages, investigating, among
others, how Spanish phonotactics informs psycholinguistic models of speech
production, how bilinguals express subject pronouns in Chipilo contact
Spanish relative to monolingual Mexican Spanish, and whether
Spanish-speaking immigrants in Montreal acquire the constraints typical to
natives in loanword adaptations.
