Title: Syntax within the Word
Subtitle: Economy, allomorphy, and argument selection in Distributed Morphology
Written By: DanielA.Siddiqi
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20138
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 138
Description:

Syntax within the Word provides a multifaceted look into the
syntactic framework of Distributed Morphology (DM) within the Minimalist
program. For those unfamiliar with the theory, this monograph provides an
overview of DM and argues its strengths. For those more familiar with DM,
this monograph provides analyses of familiar data much of which has not
been treated within the framework: argument selection, stem allomorphy and
suppletion, nominal compounds in English (feet-first vs.
*heads-first
), and the structure of the verb phrase. This monograph
also proposes a future for the theory in the form of revisions to DM
including: the elimination of readjustment rules, a new economy constraint
(Minimize Exponence) that triggers fusion of functional heads, and a
feature blocking system.
