Title: The Sound Patterns of Syntax
Edited By: Nomi Erteschik-Shir
Lisa Rochman
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

In this book leading scholars address the issues surrounding the
syntax-phonology interface. These principally concern whether the
phonological component can influence syntax and if so how far and in what
ways: such questions are a prominent component of current work on the
biolinguistics of speech production and reception. The problematic
relationship between syntax and phonology has long piqued the interest of
syntacticians and phonologists: the connections between sound and structure
have played a key role in generative grammar from its inception, initially
relating to focus and the prosodic marking of constituent structure and
more recently to word-order constraints. This book advances this work in a
series of critical and interlinked presentations of the latest thinking and
research. In doing so it draws on data from a wide range of languages,
evidence from disordered language, and related work in language acquisition.
