Complex predicates present different levels of complexity at the syntacticand morphological levels crosslinguistically. The focus of this book is asubset of these constructions (causative and applicative) in threepolysynthetic languages of the South Caucasian language family, in whichthe functional morphology associated with the argument structure of theseconstructions is unusually rich. Due to such focus, the syntax-morphologyinterface in causative and applicative constructions is subject to scrutinyin two main chapters of the book. The analysis includes the argumentstructure of causatives and applicatives along with the morpho-phonologicalinstantiation of the functional heads involved in these constructions. Thebook is written very clearly and is accessible for a wide audienceincluding undergraduate students in the introductory syntax and morphologycourses as well as graduate students in basic syntax courses and seminarsin linguistics. It naturally appeals to a general linguistic audienceinterested in theoretical linguistics.
