Hardback-To ... paraphrase, of the making of syntactic categories there is no end. For any theory of syntax, questions arise about its classificatory scheme: what are the categories? What properties do they have? How do they relate to each other? Eleven essays address these questions by inquiring whether there is a clear distinction between lexical and functional categories, how syntactic categories relate to semantic categories, the relation between syntactic and morphological information, as well as other inquiries. Above all the essays highlight the centrality of questions about syntactic categories for a number of different theoretical frameworks. It discusses a broad range of questions about syntactic categories and presents a number of theoretical frameworks. --32. *****PLEASE NOTE: This item is shipping from an authorized seller in Europe.

Overview

For any theory of syntax, major questions arise about its classificatory scheme: what sort of syntactic categories does it assume? what
properties do they have? how do they relate to each other? The questions are prominent in two of the main contemporary theories of syntax,
Principles and Parameters theory (P&P) and Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), but they are also important in other theoretical
frameworks. This book brings together ten papers which discuss questions that arise in connection with the nature and function of syntactic
categories. The papers deal among other things with functional categories, the syntax-morphology interface, mixed constructions, English
auxiliaries, the relation between syntactic and semantic categories, wh-movement phenomena, and word order in Breton and Slavic and French.

Audience: Researchers and advanced students in linguistics and such neighboring fields as cognitive science and psychology.
