The sixteen papers here united have been selected from the 38th LinguisticSymposium of the Romance Languages held in Champaign-Urbana in 2008. Thepapers, whose authors include both well-known researchers and youngerscholars, cover a broad and truly interdisciplinary range of topics inphonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and their interfaces. Among theplethora of topics examined are stress in Quebec French, vowel deletion inTuscan Italian, bare singulars in Brazilian Portuguese, case in Romanian,and hiatus in Argentine Spanish. The volume's novelty is to extend thetraditional scope of linguistic inquiry to dynamic cognitive and societalconnections between Romance and other languages, investigating, amongothers, how Spanish phonotactics informs psycholinguistic models of speechproduction, how bilinguals express subject pronouns in Chipilo contactSpanish relative to monolingual Mexican Spanish, and whetherSpanish-speaking immigrants in Montreal acquire the constraints typical tonatives in loanword adaptations.
