These two volumes contain forty-seven papers in theoretical linguistics
that were presented at NELS 37, which was hosted by the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in October, 2006. The collection covers a wide
range of topics in phonology, syntax, and semantics, and includes papers
from the special sessions on the Phonology and Morphology of Pidgins and
Creoles and on Syntactic Theory and Psycholinguistics. These volumes will
interest scholars and students in any sub-field of theoretical linguistics.
Volume one includes papers from the special sessions on the Phonology and
Morphology of Pidgins and Creoles and on Syntactic Theory and
Psycholinguistics, as well as eighteen papers from the main session. Volume
