Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

Develops the innovative argument that affixation constitutes a means of
satisfying the universal requirement that linguistic expressions be linearized.
Brings to light a range of new empirical data which is of central relevance
to current debates on the nature of head movement.
Presents Nuu-chah-nulth affixation as proof-of-concept for the hypothesis
that syntax is 'spelled out' to phonology in strictly minimal syntactic
domains.
Develops a Minimalist approach to the linearization of affixal predicates
in Nuu-chah-nulth.

The linearization of syntactic constructs stands at the forefront of
current research on the syntax-phonology interface. This book examines the
problem of linearization from a new perspective: that of the linearization
of affixes.

The driving proposition of the book is that affixation provides a means of
satisfying the universal requirement to linearize linguistic outputs. This
proposition is tested using original data from Nuu-chah-nulth ("Nootka";
Wakashan family), an endangered Amerindian language that is remarkable for
its complex morphology. The author develops a minimalist approach to the
linearization of affixal predicates and presents Nuu-chah-nulth affixation
as proof-of-concept for the hypothesis that syntax is "spelled out" to
phonology in strictly minimal syntactic domains.

This volume introduces typologically rare affixation effects into current
theoretical debates surrounding the division of labor among the modules of
grammar. It also brings to light new empirical data that is central to
current debates on the nature of head movement.
