Title: Argument Structure
Edited By: Eric J. Reuland

Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 108
Description:

Recent developments in the generative tradition have created new interest
in matters of argument structure and argument projection, giving prominence
to the discussion on the role of lexical entries. Particularly, the more
traditional lexicalist view that encodes argument structure information on
lexical entries is now challenged by a syntactic view under which all
properties of argument structure are taken up by syntactic structure. In
the light of these new developments, the contributions in this volume
provide detailed empirical investigations of argument structure phenomena
in a wide range of languages. The contributions vary in their response to
the theoretical questions and address issues that range from the role of
specific functional heads and the relation of argument projection with
syntactic processes, to the position of argument structure within a broader
clausal architecture and the argument structure properties of less studied
categories.
