Title: Syntactic Anchors
Subtitle: On Semantic Structuring
Written By: Juan Uriagereka
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 118
Description:

One of the major arenas for debate within generative grammar is the nature
of paradigmatic relations among words. Intervening in key debates at the
interface between syntax and semantics, this book examines the relation
between structure and meaning, and analyses how it affects the internal
properties of words and corresponding syntactic manifestations. Adapting
notions from the Evo-Devo project in biology (the idea of co-linearity
between structural units and behavioural manifestations) Juan Uriagereka
addresses a major puzzle: how words can be both decomposable so as to be
acquired by children, and atomic, so that they do not manifest themselves
as modular to adults.
