This book is concerned with explicit descriptions of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and with computational-linguistic aspects of Slavic languages, mostly within the Principles and Parameters framework, which situates linguistic theory in the broader cognitive sciences. Through the description of specific linguistic phenomena in Slavic languages, the papers in this volume contribute to the development of linguistic theory.
