An important impulse to generative approaches to Latin syntax was given after the rise of the new “minimalist” program put forward by Chomsky (1995). The research carried out in the “Principles and Parameters” framework aimed at studying linguistic variation, not only from a synchronic point of view but also from a diachronic one. On this basis, generative grammar faced some previous unresolved issues with renewed impetus. For example, see Miller (2000) for a derivational analysis of gerund and gerundive and Gianollo (2016) for a formal proposal of the syntax of negation and negative indefinites. The typological comparison between Latin and English within the theory of Principles and Parameters also gave origin to a new comparative syntax (e.g., see Haegeman 1997, i.a.), which encouraged the collaboration between scholars of Latin and other languages: e.g., new contributions have been produced on the analysis of infinitive sentences (Cecchetto & Oniga 2002; 2004), on verbal ellipsis (Cecchetto & Oniga 2104; 2016), and on the structure of noun phrase (Gianollo 2007; Giusti & Oniga 2006, 2007; Iovino 2012).

This volume studies perfect constructions across languages and pays special attention to perfectivity and its relation to the perfect. The issue aims to explore the relation between telicity/perfectivity and the perfect, some points of contrast between the perfect and (im)perfective markers, temporal readings of the perfect and its different degrees of remoteness, the existence of the aoristic drift, present tense lengthening in the perfect, among other topics linked to both notions.

The articles that make up this volume deal with a variety of issues related to primary and secondary stress assignment, including the interaction of stress with sonority, vowel changes in Latin, stress shift in verb+clitic groups, the role of stress in truncation and loanword adaptation, and stress location in prominence augmentation strategies.

This special issue of the CJL grew out of a workshop that took place at the UAB in the summer of 2017. The declared goal of the event was to reconsider the questions that motivate Generative Grammar and the answers given thus far, the crossroads that its practitioners must navigate, and the challenges they face given the current state of the field. These are the issues addressed by the papers collected here.
