This volume contains selected papers from the 27th Linguistic Symposium on
Romance Languages (LSRL-27), which was held at the University of
California, Irvine, on February 20-22, 1997. The 22 papers deal with
current issues in linguistic theory as they can be illuminated by the
close analysis and comparative study of Romance languages. A majority of
the articles tackles topics in syntax and semantics; the rest is divided
among topics in language acquisition, phonology, morphology, and
sociolinguistics. Among the well-represented Romance languages examined
are (Old) French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese.

>From the papers presented at the 26th LSRL, this volume offers a selection
of a contributions on phonological issues and on syntax. Most of the
grammatical phenomena discussed are treated within the frameworks of the
Minimalist Program, Distributed Morphology, or Optimality Theory. It was
apparent from the diversity of the papers delivered, that these approaches
are exposing novel phenomena, which enrich and widen our knowledge and
understanding of language. The analyses undertaken in these articles range
over a variety of (dialects of) Romance languages.
