Reviews

“This book provides state of the art studies of various topics of Romance Linguistics such as syntax, phonology, historical linguistic, discourse analysis. The papers in syntax examine modals, adjectivals, focus, dislocation, negation; the papers in phonology focus on lenition and optimality theory; in sociolinguistics the studies investigate mixing and the interaction of language and culture; many chapters study the historical evolution of Romance languages. The chapters present data in many Romance Languages (French, Old French, Spanish, Italian, Corsican, Sicilian and Sardinian)”. (Francisco Ordóñez, Stony Brook University, USA)
