The volumes <i>Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory: Selected papers from ‘Going Romance'</i> contain the selected papers of the Going Romance conferences, a major European annual discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages.

This volume assembles a significant number of selected papers that were presented at the 21st edition of Going Romance, which was organized by the Chair of Romance Linguistics of the University of Amsterdam in December 2007. The range of languages (both standard and non-standard varieties) analyzed in this volume is quite significant: Catalan, French, Italian, European and Brazilian Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish. The volume is quite representative of the spread of the variety of research carried out nowadays on Romance languages within theoretical linguistics and shows the vitality of this research.

Vowel Prosthesis in Romance. A Diachronic Study

Author: Rodney Sampson
Hardback: ISBN: 0199541159 9780199541157 Pages: 320 Price: U.S. $ 125.00
Abstract: This book presents a comparative, historical account of vowel prosthesis in the Romance languages. Vowel prothesis is one of several types of irregula and sporadic changes that have occurred in Romance, but it has remained poorly studied despite its widespread incidence. It involves the appearance of a non-etymological vowel at the beginning of a word: a familiar instance is initial e in many words in Spanish, as seen for example in the development of Latin spina to Spanish espina ‘thorn’. In a wide-ranging account, Professor Sampson distinguishes three major categories of vowel prosthesis in Romance and explores their formal characteristics, their geographical and chronological incidence, and their likely causation. He considers the relationship between the different categories to establish the extent to which they may be viewed as a unitary phenonmenon with a common basis. The book brings together for the first time a substantial body of linguistic and philological material which serves to shed a new light on vowel prothesis in less well-known Romance varieties.

Language Variation – European Perspectives II

This volume contains a selection of papers from the 4th International Conference on Language Variation in Europe (ICLaVE 4), which was held at the University of Cyprus from June 17th–19th 2007. The variety of theoretical frameworks and methodological perspectives (from Generative Grammar, Word Grammar, Government Phonology, Optimality Theory and Distributed Morphology to quantitative, Labovian and ethnographic approaches to variation and change, real and apparent time studies, phonetic analysis and metatheoretical papers on quantitative analysis), as well as the sheer number of linguistic varieties examined, attest both to the breadth and scope of the conference and to its status as a meeting-place for synchronic and diachronic linguistic description and theoretical exploration. One of the major themes running through the volume is the explicit concern with methodological refinement. Almost all the contributions address issues of methodology in various aspects of data collection and analysis, be they questionnaire surveys and interview data, spoken or written corpora, real- and apparent-time studies, dialect atlases and maps, statistical models or software. Alongside methodological issues, and especially with regard to the treatment of historical data, many of the papers in the volume explicitly address theoretical issues, for example the relative weighting of linguistic/systemic, cognitive and discourse factors in the exploration of language variation and change.
