The papers in this volume in honor of Sandra Annear Thompson deal with
complex sentences, an important topic in Thompson's career. The focus
of the contributions is on the ways in which the grammatical
properties of complex sentences are shaped by the communicative
context in which they are produced, an approach to grammatical
analysis that Thompson pioneered and developed in the course of her
distinguished career.
