This volume includes a selection of papers that address a wide range of
acquisition phenomena from different Romance languages and all share a
common theoretical approach based on the Principles and Parameters
theory. They favour, discuss and sometimes challenge traditional
explanations of first and second language acquisition in terms of maturation
of general principles universal to all languages. They all depart from the view
that language acquisition can be explained in terms of learning language
specific rules, constraints or structures. The different parts into which this
volume is organized reflect different approaches that current research has
offered, which deal with issues of development of reflexive pronouns,
determiners, clitics, verbs, auxiliaries, inflection, wh-movement, ressumptive
pronouns, topic and focus, mood, the syntax/discourse interface, and null
