This book investigates the relation between syntax and semantics. It is
argued that case, reflexive binding, as well as minimum scopes, are all
determined by the syntactic relations which hold at s-structure.
Cross-linguistic variation with respect to these phenomena is due to
corresponding variations at the s-structure level. A novel theory of case
and semantics is proposed and tested against the typologically unusual
facts of Inuit (Eskimo-Aleut family).

The book deals with causative and perception verbs in Italian and
French, with important extensions to Germanic and Balcanic languages.
Elaborating on Baker's (1988) work on incorporation, the author pro-
poses that languages may vary according to whether incorporation
occurs at lexical or sublexical level.
