How is argument structure projected into the syntax, and how does it
interact specifically with information contributed by functional heads?
The papers in this volume address these questions within a broadly
GB-based framework cross-linguistically covering empirical issues such as
auxiliaries, nominalisations, case-patternings, coordination, temporal
interpretation and binding.The papers tend to converge towards a
recognition of the non-ambiguity of lexemes and of the rich structure of
their internal specification.

PHONOLOGY
Harris, John (University College London); English Sound Structure;
1994; 336 pp; Blackwell; hb 0-631-18261-6; pb
0-631-18741-3. Inspection copy requests: (USA) blkwellworld.std.com;
(UK) inspcopiescix.compulink.co.uk.
The book is as much about phonological theory as about the phonology
of English. It is designed as a text for use on intermediate and
advanced courses but will be of value to anyone interested in recent
theoretical developments in the field. Drawing on material from a wide
range of dialects, the book explores the view that phonological
differences between grammars are constrained by universal principles
and occur within fixed bounds defined by a small number of
parameters. Phenomena discussed include vowel length, syllabic
structure, consonantal weakening, and vowel reduction and syncope.
