Title: Where Lexicon and Syntax Meet
Written By: Doris Schönefeld
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs

The book analyzes and evaluates what major linguistic models say on the interaction of lexicon and syntax in language performance. To check the plausibility of the assumptions, they are compared with what psycholinguists have found out. Moreover, reformulations, situations of speech need, the use of 'lexical chunks' are analysed for what they can contribute to the discussion, and for one of the main issues experimental evidence is also produced.
