Discussions on linguistics and discourse studies in four Romance languages

The articles in this edited volume represent Romance linguistics as a research area of excellence at the Faculty of Humanities at Stockholm University.


This is an edited volume with 19 contributions written in four Romance languages: French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. The volume represents the whole range of research areas in Romance Linguistics today at the University of Stockholm: semantics, syntax, pragmatics, discourse analysis, diachronic linguistics, translation studies and second language acquisition and use. Five of the articles are written by renowned scholars from five European universities. The authors of the remaining 14 contributions are doctors and supervisors belonging to the National Doctoral Program in Romance Languages (FoRom).

By virtue of its wide scope and the high quality of its contributions, this volume is of interest for, and will find a natural audience among, researchers of all Romance Languages departments and divisions in Scandinavia, Europe and worldwide.

Festival Romanistica is the first volume in Stockholm Studies in Romance Languages, which is a peer-reviewed series of monographs and edited volumes published by Stockholm University Press.
