Title: Phrasal and Clausal Architecture
Subtitle: Syntactic derivation and interpretation. In honor of Joseph E. Emonds
Edited By: Simin Karimi
Vida Samiian
Wendy K. Wilkins
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 101
Description:

The present collection includes papers that address a wide range of
syntactic phenomena. In some, the authors discuss such major syntactic
properties as clausal architecture, syntactic labels and derivation, and
the nature of features and their role with respect to movement, agreement,
and event-related constructions. In addition, several papers offer
syntax-based discussions of aspects of acquisition, pedagogy, and
neurolinguistics, addressing issues related to case marking, negation,
thematic relations, and more. Several papers report on new findings
relevant to less commonly investigated languages, and all provide valuable
observations related to natural language syntactic properties, many of
which are universal in their implications. The authors challenge several
aspects of recent syntactic theory, broaden the applicable scope of others,
and introduce important and provocative analyses that bear on current
issues in linguistics.
