This volume contains a selection of refereed and revised papers,
originally presented at the 32nd Linguistics Symposium on Romance
Languages, dealing with linguistic theory as applied to the Romance
languages, and on empirical studies on the acquisition of Romance,
with studies on Romanian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,
Romansch and Latin. The theoretical section contains contributions
concentrating on specific properties of Romance at the
syntax/semantics interface, on morphosyntactic issues, on subject
licensing and case, and on phonology. The acquisition section includes
contributions on first, bilingual and second language acquisition of
functional structure, word structure, quantification and stress.
