By Lunella Mereu (Ed.)

The quantity collects a range of papers offered at a eu Colloquium held on the Università degli Studi di Roma Tre in October 1997. It makes a speciality of phenomena on the boundary among morphology and syntax, and offers analyses for info from the fields of either inflectional and derivational morphology and observe order. Morpho-syntactic phenomena are analysed cross-linguistically and cross-theoretically, as typologically-different languages (European, Afro-Asiatic, American and Austronesian ones) are handled and in comparison in accordance with quite a few ways, from minimalism and lexical-functional grammar to grammaticalization concept, making an allowance for either synchronic edition and diachronic change.
The quantity is split into 3 sections: I. Morphological phenomena and their obstacles, II. Morpho-syntax and pragmatics, and III. Morpho-syntax and semantics, because the interplay with the better parts of the grammar is noticeable as contributing to explaining version in morpho-syntactic behaviour.

The Theta System: Argument Structure at the Interface

Earlier than she died in 2007, Tanya Reinhart had long past some distance in the direction of constructing the Theta process, a conception during which formal good points defining the thematic kinfolk of verbs are encoded within the lexicon, permitting an interface among the lexical part and the computational system/syntax, without delay, and the Inference approach, in a roundabout way.

This paintings arose from the need to educate international scholars in North the US a specific number of language utilized in their disciplines (speech situations), whereupon the inadequacy or non-existence of earlier research turned obvious. Given this raison d'être, the paintings first illustrates one method of the research of language with a purpose to attempt even if anything of value may be stated in regards to the typology of texts and discourse.

Introduction Important discussions of the boundaries between morphology and syntax have focused on cross-linguistic differences in the expression of similar ideas.

An adjective can modify the first noun (26a), the second (26b) or both (26c). What is impossible, however, is the insertion of a parenthetical (26d), an op­ eration which is also not allowed in compounds and which we do not consider a reliable test of compoundhood. 5. Some tentative conclusions Summarizing, the test results for the three different kinds of expressions are illustrated in the following table: COMPOUNDING: MORPHOLOGY AND/OR SYNTAX? head deletion wh-movement topicalisation insertion pron.
