Abstract:

The South Asian languages, mainly Indo-Aryan and Dravidian, have become a
focus of interest in the formal study of language as a natural consequence
of the research program of the Principle and Parameters approach and an
enforced interest in exploring the parametrical space of human language.
The contributions to the present volume combine theoretical reasoning in
syntax and phonology with a comparative research agenda in which South
Asian languages figure prominently. The topics range from issues of clause
structure, serial verb constructions, cleft- and question formation, to the
question of what the proper syntactic format of modification should be,
issues of binding theory and raising, and issues of complementation, the
clausal periphery and clausal typing. The collection of articles concludes
with two chapters on Dravidian and comparative phonology and a chapter on
the shaping of phonological awareness by different writing systems. The
authors and the editors devote this piece of work to Professor K.A.
Jayaseelan, one of present-day India's most influential linguists.
