Filling a major gap in the study of Romance languages and linguistics, this unique reference-text will be of immense value to students and teachers who, up until now, have had to depend upon separate studies of independent languages. This new work combines Romance linguistics with the latest research in Spanish sibilants, origins of Latin American Spanish, Rhaeto-Romanic dialectics, French phonemes, and Brazilian Portuguese. In addition, the book includes representative reading selections with extensive comparative passages and comprehensive bibliography.
