Description:

This volume collects the recent published articles of Guglielmo Cinque of
the University of Venice, one of the world's top linguists. The book is
divided into two sections, the first on restructuring, a central topic in
Romance syntax and with connections to other language groups as well. The
second part focuses on the consequences of treating clausal functional
heads as members of a universal hierarchy in the domain of morphosyntax,
offering a new perspective on many intricate problems arising in a variety
of natural languages.
