Within the current discussion on grammatical interfaces,
the word-classes of adjective and adverb are of particular interest
because they appear to be separated or joined in manifold ways
at the level of word-class or syntax, with morphology playing a prominent
role, especially in Romance. The volume provides typological and
theoretical insights into the common or diferent usage of adjectives
and adverbs in Romance. Diachronic change is discussed alongside with
synchronic variation and the representation in grammar.
The discussion turns out to be controversial, calling into question
traditional assumptions such as the dogma of the invariability and
the categorial status of the adverb.
