The proper treatment of nominals and nominalization has been fundamental to syntactic theory since the early 1970s. However, a satisfactory treatment of nominals and nominalization continues to prove elusive. Working within the theoretical framework of Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG), this book discusses distributional properties of pronominals, the (inherited) predicational power of deverbal nominals, and the vexed question of the syntactic category of derived nominals. Recent developments in LFG also make it possible to draw parallels between discourse clitics and case markers, and to investigate the crosslinguistic distribution and interdependencies in case marking systems in optimality-theoretic terms. Thus this book presents a collection of papers that address "classic" issues with respect to nominals and nominalizations while introducing novel perspectives on their analysis.
