Abstract:

This volume offers a thorough examination of the syntactic, semantic,
pragmatic and discourse properties of noun phrases in a wide variety of
creole (and non-creole) languages including Cape Verdean Creole, Santome,
Papiamentu, Guinea-Bissau Creole, Mindanao Chabacano, Réunionnais Creole,
Lesser Antillean, Haitian Creole, Mauritian Creole, Seychellois, Sranan,
Jamaican Creole, Berbice Dutch Creole and African American English.
Comparative studies also consider the determiner systems of Middle and
Modern French, European Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Ewe, Fon
and Gun. This compilation of 16 chapters brings together descriptive,
theoretical, diachronic and synchronic studies that focus on the structure
and interpretation of bare nouns in creoles. The contributions demonstrate
the variety and complex nature of determiner systems in creoles and their
widespread use of bare nouns in comparison to their source languages. This
volume is evidence of the relevance of creole languages to theories of
language creation, language change and linguistic theory in general.

Abstract:

The conference series Going Romance is the major European discussion forum
for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages, where ideas about
language and linguistics and about Romance languages are put in an
interactive perspective, giving space to both universality and
Romance-internal variation. The current volume features a selection of 18
articles (out of 28) that were presented during the 19th meeting at Utrecht
University, December 8-10, 2005. Included in this volume are four papers
that were presented by invited speakers: Belletti, Delais-Roussarie &
Rialland, Notley & Van der Linden & Hulk, and Ordóñez; these reflect both
issues discussed in the general session as well as themes of the workshop
on acquisition. A number of reknown Romance linguists (Saltarelli, di
Sciullo, Zubizarreta) also contributed to the volume. In general,
contributions bear on a variety of topics in the field of morphology,
syntax, semantics and pragmatics and include the perspective from acquisition.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
