Invited speakers: Andrea Calabrese, Caterina Donati & Carlo Cecchetto, Maribel Romero, Jason Rothman

Workshop (December 10, 2011): The theme of the workshop is syntactic variation and focuses on the data of Romance languages that can be used to define the position of Romance from a typological perspective ('meso' variation). Preference will be given to papers that address contrastive comparison of syntactic properties with language families outside the Romance family.
