The session, whose topic has been proposed by the Executive Committee of the Società di Linguistica Italiana, aims at taking stock of recent researches on syntax of Italian and romance, past and modern, varieties.
Members and non-members are kindly invited to submit proposals that can be placed in a synchronic or diachronic perspective, in a formal or descriptive perspective, in a typological or comparative perspective, of reflection on the core syntactic features or on the interface with other linguistic levels of analysis (phonology, morphology, semantics, pragmatics) seen across the dimension of variance or invariance.
