Title: Issues in Slavic Syntax and Semantics
Description:

Issues in Slavic Syntax and Semantics is a collection of papers dealing
with a range of syntactic and semantic phenomena across a variety of Slavic
languages. The papers included in this volume were presented at the
Graduate Colloquia on Slavic Linguistics held at the Ohio State University,
reflecting cutting-edge research in Slavic Linguistics by a new generation
of scholars from top American and European universities. Topics include the
word order of noun phrases with classifying adjectives, the correlation
between morphosyntactic realization and semantic roles of the nouns,
semantics and syntax of subordinate imperative constructions, clausal
structure and semantic properties of impersonal constructions, temporal
properties of embedded subjunctive clauses, and the semantics of yes/no
questions. The authors present the analyses of the studied phenomena within
a variety of formal syntactic and semantic frameworks, such as the
Minimalist program, semantics of events, and temporal semantics. These
studies consider syntactic and semantic issues in Russian, Bulgarian,
Serbo-Croatian, Slovenian, Old Church Slavonic, Polish, and Lithuanian. In
addition, some of the papers also offer diachronic analyses of the studied
phenomena. Issues in Slavic Syntax and Semantics definitely will interest
linguists engaged in the formal study of natural language syntax and
semantics and to Slavicists generally.
