Volume 58 of the North Holland Linguistic Series, edited by Virginia
Motapanyane, provides an up-to-date overview of studies in Romanian syntax.
Bringing together linguists working within the field of generative grammar,
the volume's comparative approach demonstrates the relevance of Romanian
data to grammatical theory. The editor's introductory chapter provides a
valuable summary of developments in Romanian syntax and is the ideal
preparation for the studies contained in this volume, both for Romance
specialists and for those less familiar with the topic. 
For graduate students in general linguistics and Romance linguistics in
particular, and scholars of all theoretical frameworks who are interested in
Romance or Balkan languages.
