An Introduction to Romance Linguistics by D. Lincoln Canfield, J. Cary Davis

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.
