A vivid commentary on Jewish survival and Jewish speech communities that will be enjoyed by the general reader, and is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the study of Middle Eastern languages, Jewish studies, and sociolinguistics.
This volume brings together various strands of research focusing on aspects
of the syntax of agreement, and the role that agreement plays in linguistic
theory. The essays collected here show how and why agreement has emerged in
recent years as the central theoretical construct in minimalism. Although
the theoretical context of the volume is minimalist in character, Boeckx
formulates formal and substantive universals in the domain of agreement.
