The inflectional morphology of Romance languages often receives attention, but genuinely comparative, interpretative, pan-Romance, overviews remain rare. The project will provide a general description of the structure of the Romance verb paradigm, but the central research question is the true extent of ‘morphomic’, autonomously morphological, structures in the Romance inflectional system, and their importance in diachronic change in the paradigmatic system.
This AHRC funded major research project aims to make the riches of the theatres of Spain and Spanish America accessible to English-speaking researchers and theatre professionals.
The virtual environment we are developing for the project will contain details of plays written in Spanish in different periods and countries, as well as information about their authors, sample translations into English, synopses, performance histories and many other tools for interpreting the featured drama.
The aim of this research is to improve our understanding of genetic anomalies that may disrupt brain functions, crucial for speech and language. With such knowledge future intervention can be found to help those who are affected.
