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.
