Summary: The annual conference series 'Going Romance' has developed into a major European discussion forum where ideas about language and linguistics and about Romance languages in particular are put in an inter­active perspective, giving room to both universality and Romance-internal variation. The current volume contains a selection of the papers that were presented at the 20th Going Romance conference, held at the VU University in Amsterdam in December 2006. The papers in the volume deal with current issues in phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics, and range across a variety of Romance languages.
