Book Information


Title: Edges, Heads, and Projections
Subtitle: Interface properties
Edited By: Anna Maria Di Sciullo
Virginia Motapanyane-Hill
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 156

This collection deals with central issues in the syntax of clauses and
their interfaces with the conceptual-intentional system. The book targets
the syntactic properties that have an impact on the interpretation of
discourse and temporal dependencies, functional fields including CP,
pragmatic markers at the syntax-pragmatic interface, and on the possible
parameterization of these properties. The papers in this volume bring to
the fore the role of the edges (specifier and adjuncts), heads and
projections in the grammar and at the interfaces. They address the question
to what extent the relevant configurations at the level of edges, head, and
projections determine the syntax/semantic, semantic/pragmatic connections.
The contributions clarify the notion of edge and bring evidence that this
notion is core to the analysis of various phenomena at the left periphery
of clauses and phrases. This volume also discusses functional heads and
their projections, particularly insofar as the properties of these heads
determine the composition of the CP field, and cases where a CP may or
may not be projected.
