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 Suarez). 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 Rosen, 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. Garcia Hernandez, L. Nadjo, Chr. Touratier). An Index of Names closes the volume.
