Fundamental Issues in the Romance Languages

Danièle Godard

Fundamental Issues in the Romance Languages compares six Romance languages—Catalan, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian—and summarizes the last thirty years of scholarship in the fields of morphology, syntax, semantics, and discourse for each language. The up-to-date analyses in this volume make it essential for undergraduate and graduate students as well as scholars of each language.

The contributors to this volume include Liliane Tasmowski, Sanda Reinheimer, Philip Miller, Paola Monachesi, Anne Abeillé, Géraldine Legendre, Antonella Sorace, Carmen Dobrovie-Sorin, Brenda Laca, Francis Corblin, Lucia Tovena, and Jean-Marie Marandin.

Danièle Godard is a senior researcher at Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in Paris, France.

Translated from French.
