Title: Theoretical and Empirical Studies in Albanian Syntax
Edited By: Giuseppina Turano
Rami Memushaj
Flora Koleci
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Indo-European Linguistics 39

This volume is a collection of articles dealing with different aspects of Albanian syntax. It brings together eleven original papers (written in Albanian and in English) which cover a wide range of interesting topics such as case-marking on nouns and pronouns; relations Agree and Concord between articles, adjectives and nouns inside the DP-structure; anaphors and binding; NP-movement and raising; the syntax of applicatives, predicative structures and restrictive relative clauses; the acquisition of English reflexives by native Albanian speakers; the distribution and the syntax of clitics. All contributions adopt the basic theoretical tenets and methodology of the generative grammar approach, from the Government and Binding theory to the subsequent development of the Minimalist Program and the Bare Phrase structure. The papers in this volume, which combine descriptive facts and theoretical questions, offer a representative picture of what the syntactic system of Albanian looks like and demonstrate that Albanian provides a fertile ground for the exploration of various aspects of theoretical linguistics. This volume will be of interest to both students of Albanian linguistics and specialists working within generative syntax.
