Studies in Linguistics And Methodology. Vol. 4
Maria Bloch-Trojnar, Anna Bloch-Rozmej
‘Modules and Interfaces’ is a collection of 14 papers by linguists of different persuasions, who address a number of issues relating to the exact number of independent generative modules, their prominence, internal structuring, and mutual interactions. Some papers are more theoretically oriented, whereas others present empirical evidence in favour of their respective models.
The languages investigated include English, Dutch, German, Swedish, Hungarian, Portuguese, Polish, Ecuador Quichua, Zoque, Yamato Japanese and Warao.
This book will be of interest to syntacticians, semanticists, morphologists, phonologists, as well as general linguists.
