Book description:

This collection of recent work in Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
focuses on interfaces between different grammatical components. The
constraint-based formalism of HPSG and its specification of
well-formed signs means that all grammatical information is encoded in
a single feature structure. This provides the means for constructing
elegant accounts of interactions between linguistic information at
different levels, whether prosodic, morphological, syntactic, semantic
or pragmatic.

The fifteen papers in this volume explore interface phenomena in one
way or another within HPSG with respect to a range of constructions
and languages and between various grammatical components. The
following topics are addressed: the relationship between constituent
structure and prosodic phrasing both in English and in Japanese, the
prosodic effects of pragmatically conditioned noun incorporation in
Danish, auxiliary contraction in English, pronominal affixation in
European Portuguese, the morpho-syntax of relative clauses in Lai,
syntactic and semantic aspects of Korean relative clause formation,
the analysis of illocutionary force in HPSG, the semantics and
pragmatics of tense, the role of argument structure at the
syntax-semantics interface with respect to German word-order, Dutch
R-pronouns and Spanish psychological predicates, long-distance case
assignment and negation in Welsh.
