This book constitutes a very useful collection of papers primarily on the acquisition of syntax and, to a lesser extent, on theoretical syntax and its interfaces with semantics, phonology and morphology. As it is often the case for book collections on Romance linguistics, the papers explore primarily Spanish, French and Italian (as a notable exception, three of the ten acquisition papers investigate Portuguese).
