Book Information

   

Title: Lexicon and Grammar: The English Syntacticon
Written By: JosephE.Emonds
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar
Description:

This book focuses on the need for a formal lexical theory, in particular, one in which lexical insertion occurs at three derivational levels. Its syntactic, subcategorization-based approach fully analyzes constructions such as causatives, light verbs, nominalization, null arguments, passives, perfects, and pseudo-partitives. Rich empirical treatments based on English, French, Italian and Japanese further claim that morphology should be fully integrated into syntax. Theoretical constructs of Economy and Abstract Case are reformulated as conditions at three interfaces: the Dictionary, Logical Form and Phonological Form.
