Editorial Reviews

“[T]his work has obliged Romanists to rethink many long-held and cherished assumptions concerning the relationship of Latin and Romance. The stimulating and thought-provoking essays gathered together in the volume demonstrate how this process can lead to the discovery and presentation of new data, a refinement of analytic techniques, and the reinterpretation of already-known material.”—Steven N. Dworkin, Journal of Hispanic Research
