By Rafael Núñez-Cedeño, Luis López, Richard Cameron

Twenty-one articles from the thirty first LSRL examine state of the art concerns and interfaces throughout phonology, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, semantics, and syntax in a number of dialects of such Romance languages as Catalan, French, Creole French, and Spanish, either previous and smooth. study in Romance phonology strikes from the quantitative and synchronic to hide problems with diachrony and Optimality conception. paintings inside of pragmatics and sociolinguistics additionally explores the synchronic/diachronic hyperlink whereas topicalizing such concerns as swap of non-pro-drop Swiss French towards pro-drop prestige, scalar implicatures, speech acts, observe order, and simplification in contexts of language touch. eventually, debates in linguistic conception are resumed within the paintings on syntax and semantics inside of either a Minimalist standpoint and an Optimality framework. How do Catalan and French youngsters gather AGR and TNS? Can Basque Spanish be in comparison to topic-oriented chinese language? If Spanish preverbal topics ensue in an A-position, can Spanish not be in comparison to Greek?

Ke paha] ¿qué pasa? v. : [hi heñor] Sí señor Figure 1. Diffusion pattern for /s/ aspiration (adapted from Méndez Dosuna 1996) The syllable-final to initial pathway for Spanish has been explicitly articulated in the framework of Natural Phonology by Méndez Dosuna (1996), who argues that the phonetic change is a progression of the diachronic process illustrated in Figure 1. According to this model, the development of /s/ aspiration and deletion begins syllable finally before a consonant (stage i: las moscas), and, generalizing from there, may extend its phonetic context to absolute final (stage ii: las moscas).
