Bringing together papers from various subfields of theoretical linguistics,
this volume gives a representative glimpse of current research on form and
function in grammar. Its overarching topic is as old as it is hot: the
relation between the major clause types as determined in syntax, and their
canonical or idiosyncratic roles in discourse as characterized in pragmatic
terms. Though none of the papers addresses this topic in its full breadth,
they can all be seen to make their specific contributions to it, scrutinizing
the pertinent aspects of the grammatical interfaces and elaborating detailed
case studies.

The first part of this collection comprises three papers (by Asher, Portner,
and van Rooy & Franke) devoted to the semantics/pragmatics interface. The
second part, with contributions by Rizzi, Saito, and Belletti, deals with the
question of how the constitution of sentence types can be related to
properties of functional categories in the clausal periphery.The last four
papers (Bošković, van Riemsdijk, Bauke & Roeper, Williams) concern the
interaction of lexical elements and clausal functional categories, revealing
unexpected parallels between clause structure and the internal structure,
particularly in lexical categories.
