Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced volume.

"New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax: Constituent Syntax
(Quantification, Numerals, Possession, Anaphora)" is the third of four
volumes dealing with the long-term evolution of Latin syntax, roughly from
the 4th century BCE up to the 6th century CE. Essentially an extension of
Volume 2, Volume 3 concentrates on additional subsentential syntactic
phenomena and their long-term evolution from the earliest texts up to the
Late Latin period. Included in Volume 3 are detailed treatments of
quantification, numerals, possession, and deixis/anaphora. As in the other
volumes, the non-technical style and extensive illustration with classical
examples makes the content readable and immediately useful to the widest
audience.

Key features:
* first publication to investigates the long-term syntactic history of
Latin
* generally accessible to linguists and non-linguists
* theoretically coherent, formulated in functional-typological terms
* does not require reading fluency in Latin, since all examples are
translated into English

Abstract:

This book reviews the history of the interface between morpho-syntax and
phonology roughly since World War II. Structuralist and generative
interface thinking is presented chronologically, but also theory by theory
from the point of view of a historically interested observer who however in
the last third of the book distills lessons in order to assess present-day
interface theories, and to establish a catalogue of properties that a
correct interface theory should or must not have. The book also introduces
modularity, the rationalist theory of the (human) cognitive system that
underlies the generative approach to language, from a Cognitive Science
perspective. Modularity is used as a referee for interface theories in the
book. Finally, the book locates the interface debate in the landscape of
current minimalist syntax and phase theory and fosters intermodular
argumentation: how can we use properties of morpho-syntactic theory in
order to argue for or against competing theories of phonology (and vice-versa)?
