Title: Configurations: Essays on Structure and Interpretation
Edited By: Anna Maria Di Sciullo
URL: http://www.cascadilla.com/config.html
Description:

This collection of papers addresses several fundamental questions in syntax and morphology: how word structure and phrase structure relate to each other, the properties of a configurational theory of argument structure and adjunct structure, and the corre ct licensing requirements and conditions of grammar. The authors base their proposals on a wide range of evidence from Romance, Hellenic, West Germanic, Semitic, African and Amerindian languages. This book is a vital contribution to understanding the structural issues central to linguistic theory.¿
