Title: Czech in Generative Grammar
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Slavic Linguistics 28
Description:

This book is the first to analyse the Czech language within a generative
framework. In twelve studies, this work offers an analysis of the Czech
language, which possesses a rich morphological system and a relatively free
word order. It suggests new hypotheses and modifications of existing
influential hypotheses based on Czech data.

The book addresses classic phenomena which have been central to generative
grammar for all of its existence, such as reflexive verb forms,
infinitives, wh-questions, mixed categories, and others. It also touches on
problems whose descriptive analysis are connected with Prague School
structuralism and only later have received generativists' attention, e.g.
topicalisation and theme/rheme word order.
