The volume contains 26 articles (17 in English, 9 in French),
selected from the papers presented at the 6th International
Colloquim on Latin Linguistics, organized in Budapest. The authors
share a common interest in applying to the study of Latin the
conceptual framework of contemporary linguistics, mainly, but not
exclusively, the theoretical tools of functional grammar and of the
newest trends in pragmatics. Most studies envisage Latin in its
synchronic functioning, but some papers embrace diachronic
processes, from the archaic period to late and even pre-Romance
stages.The volume is divided in several sections: "Phonology and
Morpho-syntax" includes one paper on phonology (Fr. Biville) and
three on morphology (G.C.L.M. Bakkum, G. Haverling, P. Manuel
Surez). Problems of the syntax of the simple sentence, often in
relation to word order phenomena, are discussed in seven articles
in Section 2 (Ch. Elerick, H. Fugier, Jan R. de Jong, Marius
Lavency, E. Rizzi and P. Molinelli, Hannah Rosn, M.H. Somers). The
grammatical problems of the complex sentence were examined by a
great many participants of the colloquium, and the third section,
"Subordination," presents eight of those papers (Gu. Calboli, P. De
Carvalho, P. Cuzzolin, J. Dangel, S. Mellet, J.A.H. Mensink, P.
Ramat, E. Vester). The section on text cohesion and particles - an
almost traditional field of research in new Latin linguistics -
includes papers by A.M. Bolkestein, C. Kroon, R. Risselada, and
M.E. Torrego. The final section, "Problems of the Lexicon," devoted
to the historical-comparative or semantic descriptive analysis of
lexical elements, contains four articles (R. Coleman, B. Garca
Hernndez, L. Nadjo, Chr. Touratier). An Index of Names closes the
