Abstract:

"Explorations in Nominal Inflection" is a collection of new articles that
focus on nominal inflection markers in different languages. The studies are
concerned with the morphological inventories of markers, their syntactic
distribution, and, importantly, the interaction between the two. As a
result, the contributions shed new light on the morphology/syntax
interface, and on the role of morpho-syntactic features in mediating
between the two components. Issues that feature prominently throughout are
inflection class, case, gender, number, animacy, syncretism, iconicity,
agreement, the status of paradigms, the nature of morpho-syntactic
features, and the structure of nominal projections. Recurrent analytical
tools involve the concepts of competition (optimality, specificity),
underspecification, and economy, in various theoretical frameworks. 

Of interest to: Research Libraries, Teachers and Advanced Students of
Linguistics (Syntax and Morphology).
