Show Summary Details


The essays in this volume address a core question about the structure of linguistic systems: how much access do grammatical components (syntax, morphology, and phonology) have to each other? Each essay argues in favor of a particular view of the interaction of these components. Each sheds light on the nature of locality domains for allomorph selection, the morphosyntactic properties of the targets of phonological exponence, and adjudicating between the competing theories of morphosyntax-phonology interaction. This volume incorporates insights from recent theoretical developments (e.g., Optimality Theory, Distributed Morphology) and insights made available to us by contemporary empirical methodologies (field work, experimental and corpus-based quantitative work).
