The main goal of this chapter is to provide a descriptive and critical overview of the some of the most striking and interesting problems and questions related to issues in Romance complementation and its development from Latin, covering such as areas as finite and non-finite complementation; loss of accusative with infinitive construction; distribution of full, reduced and VP clausal complements and their differing structural and semantic interpretations (such as clitic climbing and auxiliary selection); control (obligatory and non-obligatory control); restructuring; distribution and syntax of personal and inflected infinitives; avoidance of infinitive in southern Italo-Romance dialects and Daco-Romanian and competition with finite structures; dual complementizer systems; recomplementation; paratactic complementation (including asyndeton, AC-coordination and ET-coordination).

Keywords:   complementation, (non-)finite, control, restructuring, personal infinitives, inflected infinitives, avoidance of infinitive, dual complementizer systems, paratactic complementation
