“Each one of the essays in this collection of anonymously refereed articles is excellent. The authors examine, or re-examine interesting, complex and perplexing syntactic processes from a Romance perspective. As is often the case with analyses of grammatical process, the authors' solutions also provoke new theoretical questions. [...] this volume as well as its predecessors are extremely important and they belong in the personal library of everyone with an interest in Romance linguistics.”
