Abstract:

This innovative analysis of noun incorporation and related linguistic
phenomena does more than just give readers an insightful exploration of its
subject. The author re-evaluates--and forges links between--two influential
theories of phrase structure: Chomsky's Bare Phrase Structure and Richard
Kayne's Antisymmetry. The text details how the two linguistic paradigms
interact to cause differing patterns of noun incorporation across world
languages. With a solid empirical foundation in its close reading of
Northern Iroquoian languages especially, Barrie argues that noun
incorporation needs no special mechanism, but results from a
symmetry-breaking operation.

Drawing additional data from English, German, Persian, Tamil and the
Polynesian language Niuean, this synthesis has major implications for our
understanding of the formation of the verbal complex and the intra-position
(roll-up) movement. It will be priority reading for students of phrase
structure, as well as Iroquoian language scholars.
