Abstract:

The proper treatment of nominals and nominalization has been
fundamental to syntactic theory since the early 1970s. However, a
satisfactory treatment of nominals and nominalization continues to
prove elusive. Working within the theoretical framework of
Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG), this book discusses distributional
properties of pronominals, the (inherited) predicational power of
deverbal nominals, and the vexed question of the syntactic category of
derived nominals. Recent developments in LFG also make it possible to
draw parallels between discourse clitics and case markers, and to
investigate the crosslinguistic distribution and interdependencies in
case marking systems in optimality-theoretic terms. Thus this book
presents a collection of papers that address "classic" issues with
respect to nominals and nominalizations while introducing novel
perspectives on their analysis.
