Title: Generative Investigations
Subtitle: Syntax, Morphology, and Phonology
Edited By: Piotr Bański
Beata Łukaszewicz
Monika Opalińska
Oanna Zaleska
Description:

This volume is a collection of studies in generative (morpho)syntax and
phonology, which grew out of the 6th Generative Phonology in Poland meeting
that took place at the University of Warsaw in the spring of 2008. The
sixteen papers, written by the leading scholars in linguistics as well as
young researchers, give a representative flavour of investigations across
(morpho)syntax and phonology from the current generative perspective.
Drawing on recent advances in formal linguistics, the majority of studies
in this volume test the applicability of available theoretical frameworks
to selected bodies of data. Some papers discuss the adequacy of competing
theoretical solutions in the light of new experimental results. The
empirical data are drawn from a variety of languages including standard and
dialectal Polish, Russian, Croatian, Czech, English, Frisian and Swahili.
The purpose is not only to illustrate long-standing problems but also to
highlight less known facts. The collection will thus be relevant to those
concerned with theoretical accounts, experimental findings, Slavic and
general linguistics.
