This book focuses on the need for a formal lexical theory, in
particular, one in which lexical insertion occurs at three
derivational levels. Its syntactic, subcategorization-based approach
fully analyzes constructions such as causatives, light verbs,
nominalization, null arguments, passives, perfects, and
pseudo-partitives. Rich empirical treatments based on English, French,
Italian and Japanese further claim that morphology should be fully
integrated into syntax. Theoretical constructs of Economy and Abstract
Case are reformulated as conditions at three interfaces: the
Dictionary, Logical Form and Phonological Form.

Joseph E. Emonds is Professor of Linguistics and the English Language at
Durham University, United Kingdom.
