The contributions making up this volume in honor of Eloise Jelinek are
written from a formalist perspective that deals with stereotypically
functionalist questions about language. Jelinek's pioneering work in
formalist syntax has shown that autonomous syntax need not exist in a
vacuum. Her work has highlighted the importance of incorporating the
effects of discourse and information structure on the syntactic
representation. This book aims to invoke Jelinek's work either in
substance or spirit. The focus is on Jelinek's influential Pronominal
Argument Hypothesis as an "non-configurational" language; the
influence of discourse-related interface phenomena on syntactic
structure; the syntactic analysis of the grammaticalization;
interactions between morphology, phonology and phonetics; and
foundational issues about the link between formal grammar and function
of language, as well as the methodological issues underlying the
different approaches to linguistics.
