Edited By: Jon Amastae
M. Phinney
Carine Nganguep Tchiemouo

Description:

This volume contains 23 papers selected from those presented at the 22nd Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages. The papers address issues in phonology, morphology, syntax/semantics from contemporary theoretical perspectives. In addition, in keeping with the symposium's US-Mexico location and commemoration of the twin quincentenaries of Columbus' voyage and the publication of Nebrija's grammar, several papers focus on the history of linguistic theory, language variation, and change.
