  • 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...

  • Auxiliariesby Bernd Heine

    Oxford University Press 1993; US$ 189.99

    Offering a new perspective on auxiliaries in particular and language structure in general, this study argues that language cannot be explained satisfactorily with reference to linguistic variables alone; what is required in addition are extra-linguistic parameters relating to how we perceive the world around us, and how we utilize the linguistic resources... more...

  • Clause Structure and Language Changeby Adrian Battye; Ian Roberts

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 144.99

    The Principles-and-Parameters approach to linguistic theory has triggered an enormous amount of work in comparative syntax over the last decade or so. A natural consequence of the growth in synchronic comparative work has been a renewed interest in questions of diachronic syntax, and this collection testifies to that trend. These papers focus on questions... more...

  • Double Caseby Frans Plank

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 194.99

    Suffixaufnahme is an unusual pattern of multiple case marking due to agreement: a nominal that is already case-marked for its own adnominal function in addition copies the case of the nominal to which it is to be related. The essays in this collection comprehensively examine this little known phenomenon in all areas where it is (or was) attested--most... more...

  • Ellipsisby Anne Lobeck

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 174.99

    This book elaborates a theory of ellipsis that sheds new light on a well-known phenomenon, bringing it under the aegis of general and universal principles. Lobeck argues that ellipted categories in IP (VP Ellipsis), DP (N' Ellipsis), and CP (Sluicing) are empty, non-referential pronominals, subject to the same licensing and identification conditions... more...

  • Fragmentsby Shalom Lappin; Elabbas Benmamoun

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 169.99

    This volume contains essays on ellipsis -- the omission of understood words from a sentence -- and the closely related phenomena of gapping. This volume presents work by leading researchers on syntactic, semantic and computational aspects of ellipsis. The chapters bring together a variety of theoretical perspectives and examine a range of cross-linguistic... more...

  • Linguistic Universalsby Ricardo Mairal; Juana Gil

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 44.00

    An overview of how linguists have accounted for 'linguistic universals', the properties that all languages have in common. more...

  • Functional Structure in DP and IPby Guglielmo Cinque

    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...

  • 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...

  • Aspects of the Theory of Morphologyby Igor Mel'cuk; David Beck

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 321.00

    The series publishes state-of-the-art work on core areas of linguistics across theoretical frameworks as well as studies that provide new insights by building bridges to neighbouring fields such as neuroscience and cognitive science. The series considers itself a forum for cutting-edge research based on solid empirical data on language... more...
