Abstract:

This volume brings together ten papers, all presented at the 8th
International Conference on the Structure of Hungarian (New York City,
2007), addressing a wide range of topics in the morphology, phonetics,
phonology, pragmatics, semantics, and syntax of Hungarian, with discussion
of related facts in other languages as well. The volume includes an
analysis of the morphophonology of the infinitival suffix in Optimality
Theory, a plea for a phonetically-grounded theory of phonology based on
partial neutralization of the v/f contrast, a Government Phonology
account of vowel/zero alternations, a discussion of the recursive nature of
speech prosody, a context-structure perspective on the pragmatics of
polarity particles, a novel outlook on the prosody, semantics, and syntax
of negative quantifiers, a structural approach to the difference between
factive and non-factive complements and the distribution of the clausal
expletive azt, a pioneering study of the licensing and position of
overt nominative subjects of infinitival complement clauses, a lexicalist
perspective on the distribution of ablative cause-PPs in anti-causative
constructions, and an analysis of the complicated morphosyntax of
adpositional preverbs and their doubling in terms of partial chain
reduction in a phase-based cyclic mapping of syntax to phonology. The
volume will be of interest not just to scholars working on Hungarian, but
to a general audience of generative linguists.
