Title: The Linearization of Affixes: Evidence from Nuu-chah-nulth
Written By: Rachel Wojdak
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-6549-1
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Description:

The linearization of syntactic constructs stands at the forefront of
current research on the syntax-phonology interface. This book examines the
problem of linearization from a new perspective: that of the linearization
of affixes. The driving proposal of this book is that affixation provides a
means of satisfying the universal requirement that linguistic outputs be
linearized. This hypothesis is tested against extensive original data from
Nuu-chah-nulth ("Nootka;" Wakashan family), an endangered Amerindian
language remarkable for its complex morphology. This volume introduces
typologically rare affixation effects to current theoretical debates
surrounding the division of labour between the modules of the grammar.
