  • The Syntax of Anaphoraby Ken Safir

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 87.99

    In this work, Ken Safir develops a comprehensive theory on the role of anaphora in syntax. First, he contends that the complementary distribution of forms that support the anaphoric readings is not accidental, contrary to most current thinking, but rather should be derived from a principle, one that he proposes in the form of an algorithm. Secondly,... more...

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 144.99

    Ellipsis is the non-expression of one or more sentence elements whose meaning can be reconstructed either from the context or from a person's knowledge of the world. In speech and writing, ellipsis is pervasive, contributing in various ways to the economy, speed, and style of communication. Resolving ellipsis is a particularly challenging issue in... more...

  • Adverbs and Functional Headsby Guglielmo Cinque

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 65.00

    This text presents evidence locating adverb phrases in the specifiers of distinct functional projections within a theory of the clause. In this theory, both adverbs and heads, which encode the functional notions of the clause, are ordered in a rigid sequence. more...

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 104.99

    This volume presents the first results of a long-term research project, funded by the Italian government, which aims at mapping out the fine functional structure of sentences, nominal phrases, and other major phrases making up sentences. In particular, it examines the functional structure of DPs (determiner phrases) and IPs (inflection phrases). more...

  • Syllable Weightby Matthew Gordon

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    The book is the first systematic exploration of a series of phonological phenomena previously thought to be unified under the rubric of syllable weight. Drawing on a typological survey of 400 languages, it is shown that the traditional conception that languages are internally consistent in their weight criteria across weight-based processes is not... more...
