Title: Expecting the Unexpected: Exceptions in Grammar
Edited By: Horst J. Simon
Heike Wiese
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110219081-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 216
Description:

Every linguistic theory has to come to grips with a fundamental property of
human language: the existence of exceptions, i.e. phenomena that do not
follow the standard patterns one observes otherwise. The contributions to
this volume discuss and exemplify a variety of approaches to exceptionality
within different formal and non-formal frameworks.

Topics include criteria for exceptionality, the diachronic rise of
exceptions, the relevance of different grammatical subsystems and their
interaction in the explanation of exceptions, and the crucial
characteristics of grammatical models that can accommodate exceptions. A
special feature of the book is that the articles are accompanied by
peer-commentaries and responses thereupon, thus opening up the papers to
further discussion.
