The volume brings together the papers read at the international
conference on Romance Objects organized by the Linguistics Department
of the Roma Tre University. It is characterized by a striking
uniformity of approach, which is functional, and of methodology.

The various case studies regarding the object focus on the
syntax/semantics and syntax/pragmatics interfaces. The common
denominator of the ten enquiries is the identification of the object
category, the DO in particular, in Romance languages; at the same time
some of the contributors relate the specific topic to more general
questions of linguistic typology. Some of the essays are based on the
analysis of data from a corpus and present a diachronic picture of the
evolution of the specific topic investigated.

Thus this volume is addressed not only to scholars interested in the
Romance languages but also all those who study the object category in
a cross-linguistic perspective.
