Arguments and Agreement by Peter Ackema

Book Description

This book brings together new work by leading syntactic theorists from the USA and Europe on a central aspect of syntactic and morphological theory: it explores the role of agreement morphology in the morphosyntactic realization of a verb's arguments. The authors examine the differences and parallels between nonconfigurational, pronominal- agreement languages; configurational languages which allow pronoun drop (for example, "Is coming" for "He is coming"); languages that allow pronoun drop in particular constructions only; and languages which always require overt syntactic determiner phrases as arguments. The book considers whether the morphological properties of agreement play a role in determining which of these types a language belongs to and how far languages differ with respect to the argumental status of their agreement and syntactic determiner phrases. The authors explore these and related issues and problems in the context of a wide range of languages. Their book will interest linguists at graduate level and above concerned with morphosyntactic theory, linguistic typology, and the interactions of syntax and morphology in different languages.

Elements of Formal Semantics by Peter Ackema Elements of Formal Semantics, Hardback (April 2016)

Designed as a quick yet thorough introduction to one of the most vibrant areas of research in modern linguistics today this volume reveals the beauty and elegance of the mathematical study of meaning. It introduces the essential principles and techniques of formal semantics.

Beyond Morphology by Peter Ackema Beyond Morphology, Paperback (October 2004)

Provides an argument for a radically modular view of the human language faculty on the basis of the comprehensive study of how word formation is constrained by different components of the grammar. This book argues that complex words are generated by a dedicated rule system, which interacts with syntax and phonology.
