This collection of papers addresses several fundamental questions in syntax and morphology: how word structure and phrase structure relate to each other, the properties of a configurational theory of argument structure and adjunct structure, and the correct licensing requirements and conditions of grammar. The authors base their proposals on a wide range of evidence from Romance, Hellenic, West Germanic, Semitic, African and Amerindian languages. This volume is a vital contribution to understanding the structural issues central to linguistic theory.
The preface by Anna-Maria Di Sciullo is available on-line.
The CD-ROM edition allows you to browse, read, and search the entire book on screen, and print any sections you want to read on paper.
