The Workshop on the Acquisition of Syntax of Romance Languages intends to gather people working on the acquisition of language from a generative perspective. All topics on the fields of first, second and impaired language acquisition from a generative perspective are usually considered. This edition is open to proposals on syntax and phonology.  Usually the local organizers of every edition publish a collection based primarily on papers from the workshop. Papers are selected on the basis of blind-refereing and their contribution to specific themes of particular interest arising from the workshop. If you want to propose an edition of the Romance Turn, you can contact Vicenç Torrens (

The next edition of the romance turn will take place Venice in 2015, and will be organized by Anna Cardinaletti at Università Ca'Foscari Venezia.
