Title: Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 1999. Selected papers from 'Going Romance' 1999, Leiden, 9-11 December 1999.
Written By: Yves D'hulst
Edited By: Johan E.C.V. Rooryck
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 221
Description:

This volume brings together a selection of articles presented at Going
Romance 1999. The articles focus on current syntactic and semantic issues in various Romance languages, including Catalan, French,
Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and a number of Northern Italian dialects. A large number of articles focus on negation, which was the theme of the workshop at Going Romance 1999, but other topics investigated include Wh- in situ, free relatives, exclamatives, lexical decomposition and thematic structure, unaccusative inversion, and temporal existential constructions. Most articles are comparative in nature, relating the different syntactic and semantic properties of both Romance and non-Romance languages to principles of Universal
Grammar. The theoretical frameworks adopted in the various articles are diverse, ranging from the Principles and Parameters framework to
HPSG.
