Abstract:

This comprehensive treatment of several phenomena in Distributed Morphologyexplores a number of topics of high relevance to current linguistic theory. Itexamines the structure of the syntactic and postsyntactic components of wordformation, and the role of hierarchical, featural, and linear restrictions within theauxiliary systems of several varieties of Basque.

The postsyntactic component is modeled as a highly articulated system thataccounts for what is shared and what exhibits variation across Basque dialects.The emphasis is on a principled ordering of postsyntactic operations based ontheir intrinsic properties, and on the relationship between representations in theSpellout component of grammar with other grammatical modules. The analysesin the book treat related phenomena in other languages and thereby have muchto offer for a general morphology readership, as well as those interested in thesyntax-morphology interface, the theory of Distributed Morphology, and Basque.
