Description:

This volume contains a selection of twenty-four peer-reviewed papers from the
39th annual Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL) held at the
University of Arizona in 2009. Contributions cover a wide variety of topics
in the
areas of phonology, phonetics, syntax, morphology, and diachronic Romance
linguistics, with an emphasis on language variation and change. Among the
languages and varieties of Romance analyzed are Spanish, French, Italian,
Portuguese, Romanian, Catalan, Old French, Old Occitan, and Hispano-
Romance.The research in this volume points to a cohesiveness in Romance
linguistics that lies in the integration of up-to-date linguistic research
with a
comparative tradition and the in-depth study of a language family. The work
presented will be of interest to scholars of Romance linguistics and of
linguistics
alike.
