The first usage-based approach of its kind, this volume 
contains twelve studies on key issues in Spanish syntax: 
word order, null arguments, grammatical-relation marking, 
inalienable possession, ser and estar, adjective 
placement, small clauses and causatives studies, within a 
broad functionalist perspective. These studies strengthen 
the view that components of grammar intricately interact 
and that a usage-based approach to analyzing them offers 
new and insightful perspectives on some stubborn problems.
