Title: Selected Papers from the 2006 Cyprus Syntaxfest
Edited By: Kleanthes K. Grohmann
Phoevos E. Panagiotidis
Description:

Please Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

This volume presents a selection of contributions from the week-long Cyprus
Syntaxfest in 2006, which brought together research in syntax by several
respected and prolific theoretical linguists from all over the world.
During the six days of the Syntaxfest, work from a variety of viewpoints in
modern generative grammar was presented, and the research discussed and
debated followed diverse methodological paths, with the thematic focus on
left peripheries in linguistic structures and (their) interface interpretation.

The current collection of expanded versions of selected research presented
at the Cyprus Syntaxfest reflects a wide variety of approaches to these
topics; it also provides a glimpse of the rich sample of cross-linguistic
data that informed the discussions of syntactic peripheries and their
interface interpretation. It offers eleven studies on clausal and nominal
left-peripheral phenomena and their (role in) interpretation in a variety
of typologically unrelated languages. More significantly, the contributions
collected here underscore the by now established importance and theoretical
interest of studying the edge of constituents, whether phasal or not. In
every chapter, the blueprint of a general interpretive hierarchy driving
and constraining syntax is also retraced throughout.
