Part of the set: Montreuil, Jean-Pierre Y. and Chiyo Nishida (eds.), New
Perspectives on Romance Linguistics: Vol. I: Morphology, Syntax,
Semantics, and Pragmatics; Vol. II: Phonetics, Phonology and Dialectology.
2 Vols. set. Selected papers from the 35th Linguistic Symposium on
Romance Languages (LSRL), Austin, Texas, February 2005.

This is the first of two volumes emanating from the Linguistic Symposium on
Romance Languages held at the University of Texas at Austin in February
2005. It features the keynote address delivered by Denis Bouchard on
exaptation and linguistic explanation, as well as seventeen contributions by
emerging and internationally recognized scholars of Spanish, French, Italian,
as well as Rumanian. While the emphasis bears on formal analyses, the
coverage is remarkably broad, as topics range from morphology, syntax,
semantics, pragmatics and language acquisition. Each article seeks to
represent a new perspective on these topics and a variety of frameworks and
concepts are exploited: distributive morphology, entailment theory,
grammaticalization, information structure, left-periphery, polarity lattice,
spatial individuation, thematic hierarchy, etc. This volume will challenge
anyone interested in current issues in theoretical Romance Linguistics.
