Syntactic architecture and its consequences II: Between syntax and morphology

András Bárány; Theresa Biberauer; Jamie Douglas; Sten Vikner

This volume collects novel contributions to comparative generative linguistics that
“rethink” existing approaches to an extensive range of phenomena, domains, and
architectural questions in linguistic theory. At the heart of the contributions is the tension
between descriptive and explanatory adequacy which has long animated generative
linguistics and which continues to grow thanks to the increasing amount and diversity of
data available to us.
The chapters address research questions in comparative morphosyntax, including the
modelling of syntactic categories, relative clauses, and demonstrative systems. Many of
these contributions show the influence of research by Ian Roberts and collaborators and
give the reader a sense of the lively nature of current discussion of topics in morphosyntax
and morphosyntactic variation.
This book is complemented by two other volumes.
