Twenty-one articles from the thirty first LSRL examine state of the art matters 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and syntax in a number of dialects of such Romance languages as Catalan, French, Creole French, and Spanish, either outdated and sleek. examine in Romance phonology strikes from the quantitative and synchronic to hide problems with diachrony and Optimality concept. paintings inside pragmatics and sociolinguistics additionally explores the synchronic/diachronic hyperlink whereas topicalizing such matters as switch 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 concept are resumed within the paintings on syntax and semantics inside either a Minimalist viewpoint and an Optimality framework. How do Catalan and French young ones collect AGR and TNS? Can Basque Spanish be in comparison to topic-oriented chinese language? If Spanish preverbal matters happen in an A-position, can Spanish now not be in comparison to Greek?

This contrasts with syllable final /s/, where following phonological environment showed the greatest range. Following phonological environment was not selected as significant for word initial /s/, and shows a relatively smaller range for medials than preceding environment. It appears that syllable initial /s/ looks more to its preceding phonological environment, whereas syllable final /s/ looks to the following. The former is looking back, as it were, and the latter is looking forward. The direction of effect in all factor groups is similar, both word initially and medially.

In (13b) and (13c), only two consonants are involved, whereas in (5), (6), and (9), three consonants occur in sequence. 12 (757-831) Julie Auger leaving it to SyllCon to decide where the epenthetic vowel is inserted. However, in (13b) and (13c), epenthesis is not required, as the first of the two consonants can be syllabified as the coda of the syllable headed by the preceding vowel, and the second consonant can be syllabified as an onset. Thus, it appears that SyllCon cannot trigger vowel epenthesis in order to break up a bad syllable contact and that its power is limited to determining the site in which an otherwise required epenthetic vowel will be inserted.
