SYNTAX

Dalrymple, Mary THE SYNTAX OF ANAPHORIC BINDING
 CSLI Publications 1993 ix, 179 pp. Anaphora
 US $17.95 (paper) $45.00 (cloth) ISBN 1-881526-06-2 (paper),
 1-881526-07-0 (cloth)
 Distributed by The University of Chicago Press (1-800-621-2736)
This book provides a theory of the syntax of anaphoric binding within
the framework of Lexical-Functional Grammar, showing how a set of
complex constraints on f-structural relations can interact to predict
the wide range of universally-available syntactic conditions which
anaphoric elements obey.


Kroeger, Paul PHRASE STRUCTURE AND GRAMMATICAL RELATIONS IN TAGALOG
 CSLI Publications 1993 xiv, 240 pp. Phrase Structure Grammar
 US $16.95 (paper) $39.95 (cloth) ISBN 0-937073-86-5 (paper),
 0-937073-87-3 (cloth)
 Distributed by The University of Chicago Press (1-800-621-2735)
Kroeger examines the history of the subjecthood debate and uses data
from Tagalog to test the theories that have been put forth. He
asserts that grammatical relations are not defined in terms of surface
phrase structure configurations, but on the basis of syntactic
properties.



SEMANTICS

Ojeda, Almerindo LINGUISTIC INDIVIDUALS
 CSLI Publications 1993 xii, 201 pp. Semantics
 US $17.95 (paper) $45.00 (cloth) ISBN 0-937073-84-9 (paper),
 0-937073-85-7 (cloth)
 Distributed by The University of Chicago Press (1-800-621-2736)
Ojeda argues that the universe of discourse is mereologically
structured by the relation of instantiation, the relation which holds
between kinds and their instances. He examines the semantics of
countability, uncountability, nominality, and the conceptual neuter.
