From Latin to Romanian

To the bibliography for Romanian historical grammar given on pg. 503 add:

Sala, Marius. 2005. From Latin to Romanian The historical development of Romanian in a comparative Romance context. University, Mississippi: Romance Monographs.

The title of this work, a translation of De la latină la română. Bucharest: Univers enciclopedic. 1998, is a little bit misleading to the English speaekr in that it makes one immediately think of Williams's From Latin to Portuguese or Pope's From Latin to Modern French, but the scope and organization of this book is quite different. Most of the book is devoted to a study of the Romanian lexicon and its various strata. Morphology, syntax, and especially phonology, take a backseat.
