Coursebook in Romance Linguistics

Jurgen Klausenburger
University of Washington

This course book on (advanced) Romance linguistics begins with a
discussion of a possible 'definition' of this discipline. There is a
strong contrast between what could be called the 'classical' definition
of the field, based, quite clearly, in 19th century comparative
historical linguistics or philology, and late 20th century practice,
apparently a (highly successful) application of modern linguistic
theory.

Interestingly, these two are easily reconcilable, if one considers them
both as 'applications of the linguistic theory current at the time.' It
can be claimed, in fact, that Romance constituted and constitutes an
epitome in such an application.

	The first major section of the course will treat Romance areas of
concern within morphophonology, to be coherently held together by the
concept of morphologization, with the following subsections:

a. Vocalic quantity /quality, focusing on the evolution from Latin to
Romance;  b. Diph-thongization, dealing with all the Romance languages;
c. Nasalization, linked to French and Portuguese; d. Palatalization (of
consonants), involving the whole Romance area; e. Sandhi phenomena,
stressing French liaison and related processes.

	The second major division will discuss Romance analyses in the area of
morphosyntax, theoretically explained by the concept of
grammaticalization, with the following headings: a. Verbal paraphrasis,
involving all the Romance languages; b. Case systems, stressing Rumanian
and Old French; c. Clitics, as applied to all Romance languages; d.
Evolution of inflectional morphology, with special focus on Modern
Spoken French; e. The null subject parameter, contrasting Spanish and
Italian with French. This course book concludes with a section
evaluating Romance contributions to linguistic theory, particularly at
the end of the 20th century. It will emphasize the 'privileged' position
of the Romance field, characterized by a richness and variety of
attestations throughout.
