Abstract:

This book explores the interface between syntax and the other components 
of the grammar, in particular phonology, morphology, and argument 
structure. The author proceeds through a consideration of case studies, 
such as clitics and complex predicates (auxiliary and modal verbs) in 
Romance, grounding theoretical analysis in constant exemplification. She 
shows that a careful analysis of their properties can lead to a better 
understanding of the interaction of the various components of the grammar. 

The syntactic properties of clitics are considered in relation to their 
phonological and morphological characteristic. The properties of auxiliary 
verbs are analysed from the perspective of the interface between argument 
structure and syntactic structure. Modal verbs are examined at the 
interface between syntax and phonology. The analyses of clitics and 
auxiliaries throw interesting new light on the link between Romanian and 
Balkan/Slavic. This is a valuable contribution to the study of grammatical 
interfaces and to Romance verbal typology and comparative linguistics.
