Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 318
Description:

This volume contains a selection of nineteen peer-reviewed papers from the
40th annual Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL) held at the
University of Washington in March 2010. In addition to overviews of Romance
linguistics by the editor and by Jurgen Klausenburger in the keynote article,
contributions cover a variety of linguistic theoretical topics and a range of
Romance languages, including Old and Modern French, Italian, Romanian as
well as several dialects of Spanish and Portuguese. A number of papers deal
with the morphophonology of Peninsular Spanish languages, agreement
anomalies, generic interpretation, and the syntax/semantics of determiners,
particularly of Romanian. Both the topics and the languages discussed in this
volume are tied together by a number of 'leitmotifs', and several articles
present phenomena not previously considered. The volume makes significant
contributions both to the documentation of Romance languages and to linguistic
theory, and will be of interest to Romance and general linguistics scholars.
