This two-day workshop is part of the Annual Conference of the Department of Linguistics of the University of Bucharest, thematically devoted to linguistic variation in Romanian and Romance.

In the past 20 years, syntactic variation has played a crucial role in shaping the principles and parameters approach to the architecture of the language faculty. Issues in morphological and phonological variation also bring important contributions to the current development of theories of morphology and phonology. The Romance languages represent a fertile test-bed for formulating theoretical hypotheses on the nature, source and extent of (micro)variation, which may bring relevant contributions to the formal modeling of linguistic variation. Given their relatively well-known history and their common ancestry, the Romance languages also present a unique opportunity for understanding how linguistic variation emerges (i.e. the same input leading to different, variant outputs). The set of phenomena which are known in the literature to be subject to intense (syntactic, morphological and phonological) variation from both a cross-Romance and a dialectal (intralinguistic) perspective includes (but is not restricted to): (i) clitics, (ii) verb movement, (iii) negation, (iv) agreement, (v) gender and number, (vi) reduplication, (vii) doubling, (viii) ellipsis, (ix) deixis i.a.
