In grade school, no one would have ever guessed I'd grow up to become a linguist-- I was the kid who got Cs in French and couldn't produce a trill to save my life!

The annual Going Romance conference has developed into the major European discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages where current ideas about language in general and about Romance languages in particular are tested. The twenty-fourth Going Romance conference was organized by the Leiden University Centre of Linguistics (LUCL) and took place in Leiden on 9–11 December 2010.
The present volume contains a selective collection of peer-reviewed articles (10 out of approximately 30 contributions) dealing with poignant issues in syntax, phonology, morphology, and semantics of the Romance languages. The innovative character of the proposals as well as the discussions of various interface issues offered by the papers contained in this volume are interesting for both Romance scholars and other linguists. Among the contributions are the papers presented by the invited speaker M. Rita Manzini and of prominent linguists such as João Costa, Viviane Deprez and David Embick.
