Expressing contrast in Romanian
The conjunction iar
This paper studies the Romanian conjunction iar. After a general introduction to the connective and the existing approaches, we defend an approach of iar as an information structure sensitive item. We describe two constraints on the use of iar that account for a wide range of data. We then use our analysis to compare the system of Romanian conjunctions to that of other languages, especially Russian, which uses a connective that appears similar to Romanian iar.
