Meeting Description:

Going Romance is the European conference series that focuses on
Romance languages from the perspective of current linguistic theorizing. In
the two decades of its existence, it has developed into the major European
discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages
where current ideas about language in general and about Romance
languages in particular are discussed.

Going Romance has a steering committee, in which all Dutch universities
that are involved in research on Romance languages are represented. It is
organised every year, in the first half of December.

Call For Papers

Non-Romance features in Romance languages

We invite papers that provide a theoretical account of non-Romance
features attested in Romance languages. By 'non-Romance features', we
refer to morphosyntactic, semantic and phonological properties of Romance
that transcend Romance proper, in the sense that they are attested in non-
Romance languages as well, suggesting a common, more fundamental
account in terms of the theory of grammar.

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion).

Abstracts should be anonymous and no longer than two pages, including
references and examples, with margins of at least 1-inch, font size 12,
single spaced. Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and
one joint abstract per author and should be submitted to:
goingromance2010gmail.com.

Authors are asked to submit their abstracts as PDF e-mail attachments. The
abstract should include the title, but not the author's name(s). The title of
the paper, name of the author(s), affiliation(s), address, phone number, and
e-mail address should be included in the e-mail message.

Please indicate whether you submit your paper for the general sessions or
for the workshop. All authors who present their work at the conference will
be invited to submit their paper for the peer reviewed volume in the
Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory series, published by John
Benjamins.
