THE 23RD ANNUAL LINGUISTIC SYMPOSIUM ON ROMANCE LANGUAGES

APRIL 1-4, 1993 NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY, DEKALB, IL

THE TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL LINGUISTIC SYMPOSIUM ON ROMANCE
LANGUAGES WILL BE HOSTED BY NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY,
APRIL 1-4, 1993. THIS SCHOLARLY CONFERENCE WILL INCLUDE
THE PRESENTATION OF SELECTED PAPERS DEALING WITH THE
ROMANCE LANGUAGES. THIS YEAR'S CONFERENCE IS SPONSORED
BY THE DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES, THE COLLEGE OF
LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCES, THE GRADUATE SCHOOL, AND THE
OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY.
SPECIAL SUPPORT FROM THE GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM COMMITTEE IS
SPONSORING THE FOLLOWING THREE FEATURED LECTURES:

(1) PROFESSOR MARIO D. SALTARELLI, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA, "VOICE IN LATIN AND ROMANCE." THIS LECTURE
WILL DEAL WITH THE PASSAGES FROM THE INFLECTIONALLY BOUND
PASSIVE VOICE CONSTRUCTION IN LATIN TO THE MODERN ROMANCE
PRONOMINAL CONSTRUCTIONS. THE REPLACEMENT OF THE LATIN

"INFLECTIONAL (BOUND) MORPHOLOGY" BY A NOVEL "INFLECTIONAL
(CLITIC) SYSTEM" IN THIS ACCOUNT IS VIEWED AS PRESERVING
THE FUNCTION OF THE ORIGINAL LATIN. THUS, THE FUNCTION OF
THE INFLECTIONAL -R MORPHOLOGY IS PASSED ON TO A SUBJECT-
INHIBITING -SE CLITEC SYSTEM WITH THE SAME UNIFORM CONSTRAINTS
APPLYING UNCHANGED.

(2) PROFESSOR IRENE VOGEL, UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE, "PHONO-
LOGICAL INTERFACES IN ITALIAN." WE HAVE COME TO SEE IT
PROPOSED MORE AND MORE IN LINGUISTIC RESEARCH THAT THE
DIFFERENT COMPONENTS OF GRAMMAR INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER IN
A NUMBER OF STRIKING WAYS. THIS PAPER WILL ADDRESS THE WAYS
PHONOLOGY INTEREACTS WITH OTHER COMPONENTS OF GRAMMAR
SPECIFICALLY MORPHOLOGY, SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS.

(3) PROFESSOR KAREN T. ZAGONA, UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON,
"OVERT AND IMPLICIT TEMPORAL ARGUMENTS." THE PREVIOUS
LITERATURE ON TEMPORAL ARGUMENTS HAS RECOGNIZED ONE TYPE OF
TEMPORAL ENTITY ONLY. IT WILL BE ARGUED THAT TWO TYPES MUST
BE DIFFERENTIATED CORRESPONDING TO BOTH OVERT AND IMPLICIT
ARGUMENTS. THEIR DISTINCT PROPERTIES FOR THE SYSTEM OF
PERFECT TENSES IN ROMANCE WILL BE ILLUSTRATED WITH A FOCUS
ON THE CONTRAST BETWEEN SPANISH, ON THE ONE HAND, VERSUS
FRENCH AND ITALIAN, ON THE OTHER.

PANEL. PROFESSOR JURGEN KLAUSENBURGER, UNIVERSITY OF
WASHINGTON-SEATTLE, HAS ORGANIZED AND WILL MODERATE A PANEL
ENTITLED "TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF FRENCH PHONOLOGY. FROM SPE
AND FRENCH PHONOLOGY AND MORPHOLOGY TO THE PRESENT. AN
HISTORICAL OVERVIEW." PARTICIPANTS: PROFESSOR JEAN-PIERRE
MONTREUIL, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS-AUSTIN; PROFESSOR SANFORD
SCHANE, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA-SAN DIEGO; PROFESSOR DOUGLAS
WALKER, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY.
