This introduction to information structure discusses a wide range of
phenomena on the syntax-information structure interface. It examines
whether information structure maps onto syntax, and if so how. The topics
covered include definitions of topic and focus, architectures of grammar,
information structure, word order, the lexicon and information structure
interface, and cognitive aspects of information structure. This book will
appeal to graduate students of syntax and semantics in departments of
linguistics, philosophy, and cognitive science.
