Title: Complex Predicates
Subtitle: The syntax-morphology interface
Written By: Leila Lomashvili
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20174
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 174
Description:

Complex predicates present different levels of complexity at the syntactic
and morphological levels crosslinguistically. The focus of this book is a
subset of these constructions (causative and applicative) in three
polysynthetic languages of the South Caucasian language family, in which
the functional morphology associated with the argument structure of these
constructions is unusually rich. Due to such focus, the syntax-morphology
interface in causative and applicative constructions is subject to scrutiny
in two main chapters of the book. The analysis includes the argument
structure of causatives and applicatives along with the morpho-phonological
instantiation of the functional heads involved in these constructions. The
book is written very clearly and is accessible for a wide audience
including undergraduate students in the introductory syntax and morphology
courses as well as graduate students in basic syntax courses and seminars
in linguistics. It naturally appeals to a general linguistic audience
interested in theoretical linguistics.
