Abstract

This paper studies the Romanian conjunction <i>iar</i>. After a general introduction to the connective and the existing approaches, we defend an approach of <i>iar</i> as an information structure sensitive item. We describe two constraints on the use of <i>iar</i> that account for a wide range of data. We then use our analysis to compare the system of Romanian conjunctions to that of other languages, especially Russian, which uses a connective that appears similar to Romanian <i>iar</i>.
