      When we think of Romance languages, an image of Don Juan or romantic, wine-drinking lovers may come to mind. While meeting your better half and learning a romance language don’t always come hand-in-hand (actually, learning a romance language is easier!), there are plenty of other reasons to learn one of these beautiful languages. Part nuts-and-bolts computational linguistics articles and part cri de coeur from a researcher who is exasperated at the hand-wavy route much theoretical linguistics has taken. I am sympathetic to the latter, but bought the book for the former, specifically the chapter "Good-Turing frequency estimation without tears", a detailed tutorial on this smoothing technique that I couldn't find 4/5.

    Book on romance language evolution. Is there a good book on how the different Romance languages evolved apart from their Latin roots? I want something with a more historic point of view, if Possible. I know the basics, I guess, from vulgar Latin to some more recent distinctions, but I'd like a larger book with more examples and a historical. Analyses of oppositions are supported by various logical, rather than experimental, tests, e.g. the minimal-pair test in phonology or the entailment test in semantic-feature : Hans-Jörg Schmid.

      The word romance connotes love and wooing, but when it has a capital R, as in Romance languages, it probably refers to a set of languages based on Latin, the language of the ancient Romans. Latin was the language of the Roman Empire, but the classical Latin that was written by literati like Cicero was not the language of daily life.
