Structure preserved : studies in syntax for Jan Koster( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Structure is at the rock-bottom of all explanatory sciences" (Jan Koster). Forty years ago, the hypothesis that underlying the bewildering variety of syntactic phenomena are general and unified structural patterns of unexpected beauty and simplicity gave rise to major advancements in the study of Dutch and Germanic syntax, with important implications for the theory of grammar as a whole. Jan Koster was one of the central figures in this development, and he has continued to explore the structure preserving hypothesis throughout his illustrious career. This collection of articles by over forty syntacticians celebrates the advancements made in the study of syntax over the past forty years, reflecting on the structural principles underlying syntactic phenomena and emulating the approach to syntactic analysis embodied in Jan Koster's teaching and research
Parenthesis and ellipsis : cross-linguistic and theoretical perspectives( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a cross-section of research addressing the interaction of two prominent areas in linguistic theory: parenthesis and ellipsis. The contributions address various theoretical questions raised by 'incomplete' parenthetical constituents, covering a diverse empirical domain and various subfields of linguistics

La relativisation prénominale by Tong Wu( )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study concerns the prenominal relative clause in the framework of typology and of the Minimalist model of Generative Grammar. The first chapter defines the relative clause and establishes three typologies on relative clauses. The second chapter specifies what are "prenominal relative clause" and "primary prenominal relative clause languages". These languages are presented according to their geographic distribution and linguistic affiliation, but the geographic and genetic factors cannot analyze properly the prenominal relative clause, because it can be better analyzed according to its typological properties. The third chapter exposes in detail the generative analyses on relative clauses, i.e. Head External Analysis, Head Raising Analysis and Matching Analysis, and discusses how they can be integrated into the Minimalist Program. The fourth chapter analyzes the prenominal relative clause in the Minimalist framework according to Kayne (1994). It is shown how the following elements in the DP of the prenominal relative clause can be correctly linearized, i.e. definite article, demonstrative, relative clause, relativizer and head noun. The basic structure is [DP DemP [D° [CP NP [C° [IP tNP]]]]]. It can derive the 16 linear orders found in prenominal relative clause languages. The reconstruction effect is analyzed according to Bianchi (2004), the case/Case conflict and the gaps according to Pesetsky (2009a & 2009b) and the resumptive pronoun according to Boeckx (2003). In the last section, another analysis, i.e. Cinque (2003/8), is applied to the prenominal relative clauses. The fifth chapter talks about non-intrinsic typological properties of the prenominal relative clause
