This volume contains a selection of the papers that were presented at the 35th Going Romance conference. Going Romance is one of the leading European annual conferences on the theoretical analysis of Romance languages. While since the creation of Going Romance in 1986 it used to be organized in turn by one of the six Romance departments of the Dutch universities, since 2009 it is organized in turn by a Dutch university or by another European university.

Going Romance XXXV took place in Amsterdam on 1-3 December 2021. It was hosted jointly by the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) and took place in a digital form, due to the pandemic. On the first day of the conference there were two workshops in parallel in the afternoon. The themes of the workshops were “Syntactic theory and language acquisition: The Romance perspective” and “Partitivity in Romance languages”. The acquisition workshop was organized by Marco Bril and Martine Coene. The partitivity workshop was organized by Tabea Ihsane and Petra Sleeman, two members of the European PARTE (“Partitivity in European Languages”) network, funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research NWO and the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, the Károli Gáspár University in Budapest, the University of Pavia, and the University of Zurich. The invited speaker of the workshop on acquisition was Francesca Volpato. The invited speakers of the workshop on partitivity, PARTE members Elisabeth Stark and David Paul Gerards, presented a joint paper. The invited speakers of the main session were Ingo Feldhausen and Henriette de Swart. The main session contained a selection of the papers that were submitted for oral or poster presentation. The abstracts of all sessions were reviewed by three experts in Romance linguistics from all over the world. As usual, the areas of research varied from syntax and semantics to morphology and phonology, from a synchronic, diachronic and acquisitional perspective.
