This volume presents selected papers from the 36th LSRL conference held at Rutgers University in 2006. It contains twenty-two articles of current approaches to the study of Romance linguistics. Well-known researchers present their findings in areas such as of syntax and semantics, phonology, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics. The volume contains scholarly research in areas such as parenthetical null topic construction, expletives, number and language change, performative verbs in colonial court Spanish, aspect shift, palatilization in Romanian, melodic contours in Majorcan Catalan, variation in verb type and position, and deviance in early child bilingualism among many others. It is a well-rounded selection of research topics that will enrich and widen our understanding of Romance languages.

“This collection, while certainly engaged in formal syntax, also includes variationist proposals, an unusual departure from the traditional emphasis on formal linguistics. Whether this signals a future trend for the LSRL remains to be seen. Whatever the case, we have here a representative publication of the LSRL's continuing high quality.”
