Description:

Volume 58 of the North Holland Linguistic Series, edited by Virginia Motapanyane, provides an up-to-date overview of studies in Romanian syntax.

The editor's introductory chapter provides a valuable summary of developments in Romanian syntax and is the ideal preparation for the studies contained in this volume, both for Romance specialists and for those less familiar with the topic. For graduate students in general linguistics and Romance linguistics in particular, and scholars of all theoretical frameworks who are interested in Romance or Balkan languages.
