The volumes Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory published in the
series Current Issues in Linguistic Theory contain the selected papers
of the Going Romance conferences, a major European annual discussion
forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages.
Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2001 is the third such
volume. It presents a selection of the papers that have been presented
at the occasion of Going Romance 2001 (XV) - which was held at the
University of Amsterdam on December 6-8, 2001. The three-day program
included a workshop on Determiners. The volume contains articles on
specifics of one or more Romance languages or varieties: the
architecture of the Determiner Phrase and properties of determiners,
the left periphery of the sentence and clause structure, null elements
and their interpretation, clitics, and other interesting phenomena in
the Romance languages.
