Book Information

   

Title: Cross-Disciplinary Issues in Compounding
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20311
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 311
Description:

The study of compounds is currently at the center of attention in many
areas of both theoretical and applied linguistics. This volume brings
together contributions by experts involved in a wide range of such areas,
based on a large number of diverse languages – spoken and signed. The fact
that compound constructions are at the interface of the various components
of language – morphology, syntax, phonology, and semantics – makes them
ideal testing grounds for models of grammatical architecture, as seen in a
number of these chapters.

The breadth and depth of the coverage of topics, as well as the unified
bibliography, make this volume a basic reference source for those
interested in current theoretical as well as experimental approaches to
compounding, and thus to theoretical linguists as well as psycholinguists
and researchers in related fields of cognitive science.
