Title: Ways of Structure Building
Edited By: Myriam Uribe-Etxebarria
Vidal Valmala
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199644940.do
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This volume addresses some of the most important approaches to the
following key questions in contemporary generative syntactic theory: What
are the operations available for (syntactic) structure-building in natural
languages? What are the triggers behind them? and Which constraints are
involved in the operations? Internationally recognised scholars and young
researchers propose new answers on the basis of detailed discussions of a
wide range of phenomena (Gapping, Right-Node-Raising, Comparative
Deletion, Across-The-Board movement, Tough-constructions,
Nominalizations, Scope interactions, Wh-movement, A-movement, Case and
Agreement relations, among others). Their discussions draw on evidence
from a rich variety of languages, including Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian,
Croatian, English, German, Icelandic, Japanese, Spanish, Vata, and
Vietnamese.

The proposals presented illustrate the shift in the locus of the explanation of
linguistic phenomena that characterizes contemporary linguistic theory: a
shift, in many cases, from a model which relies on properties of systems
external to narrow syntax (such as the Lexicon or the Phonetic Form
component) to one which relies on properties of the structure-building
mechanisms themselves. The volume will interest researchers and students
of theoretical linguistics from advanced undergraduate and above.
