The volume reflects the diversity of interests of the contributors, not only in the learning contexts investigated (first language acquisition, typical or impaired, and bilingualism), but also in the linguistic properties investigated, in both syntax and phonology, and the languages under examination (work not only on Romance languages such as French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish, but also comparative studies involving Basque, Modern Greek, and Cypriot Greek). Such a variety allows for multiple comparisons, which corresponds to the objective of the Romance Turn: providing an interactive platform for exchange between researchers on the acquisition of Romance languages from a generative perspective. The volume is divided into two parts: the first part includes two papers presented as plenaries, one on L1 acquisition of morphophonology in European Portuguese (by M. Joao Freitas) and one on L1 acquisition of relative clauses in Italian (by Adriana Belletti), while the second part comprises 13 papers by Nikos Amvrazis, Isabel Garcia del Real & Maria Jose Ezeizabarrena, Giuliana Giusti, Elaine Grolla, Kleanthes Grohmann, Virginia Hill & Mihaela Pirvulescu, Juana Liceras, Katerina Palasis, Manuela Pinto, Tihana Kra, Anca Sevcenco & Larisa Avram, and Francesca Volpato.
