Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Specialists in the several areas of linguists from Australia, North America, and Japan apply formal approaches to universals and variations across natural languages. They address a minimalist program of principles and parameters, lexical functional grammar, and optimality theory. Readers are expected to be familiar with the basic frameworks. Among the topics are ingestive predicates as a case of quirky alternatives to transitivity, syntactic constraints in a free- word-order language, and vowel place contrasts. Annotation c.
