What People are Saying About This

Jonathan David Bobaljik

Embick's masterful treatment of allomorphy cuts right to the core of a complex area, elucidating with rare clarity key empirical considerations that bear directly on some of the most fundamental questions of the organization and nature of grammar. This insightful work not only lays out a persuasive argument for a localist, serialist architecture, but by clearly identifying what is at stake in the major debates, it should play a significant role in setting the course of future theorizing. With fine attention to empirical detail and a broad perspective linking syntax, morphology, and phonology, this is interfaces research at its finest.
