The Syntax of Local Processes
Collected Essays by Joseph E. Emonds, Volume One
Joseph E. Emonds (University of Durham)

This volume (the first of a two-volume set) contains articles
originally published between 1973 and 1987 around a unified theme.
Each article has an empirical focus on one or more local syntactic
processes. While most of the articles were written to support
theoretical positions in terms of debates that have since been settled
or eclipsed, these studies linguistically situate many paradigms of
interest and support still defensible analyses for a variety of
constructions often treated only schematically in current literature.
Several contain some first formulations of arguments and claims still
widely in use. Though formulated in terms of local transformations,
the properties and paradigms discussed thus remain relevant for
determining optimal grammatical and lexical characterizations of
individual members of functional categories.
