Title: Weak Island Semantics
Written By: Márta Abrusán
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199639380.do
Description:

This book presents a novel semantic account of weak islands, structures that block the displacement of certain elements in a sentence. Dr Abrusán's argument that the behaviour of these constructions has a semantic rather than syntactic explanation removes some of the most important reasons for postulating abstract syntactic rules as part of UG.
