Abstract:

In the early '80s, largely due to Chomsky's Lectures on Government and
Binding and ensuing research, a kind of encompassing theory of "empty
elements" had emerged. This theory was largely concerned with silent
subjects, silent pronominals, and various kinds of traces of movement.
Since then, however, the picture has become more blurred. More types of
empty elements were proposed, ellipsis phenomena began to receive some
attention, and interface issues arose: are silent elements silent due to
deletion (or failure to be spelled out) at the phonetic interface or are
they independently existing items in the lexicon that simply fail to have a
phonetic form? 

Furthermore, silent elements are also ubiquitous in phonology and similar
questions arise: can syllables have empty nuclei, can segments fail to be
pronounced when they are not properly attached to a slot in a (supra-)
segmental structure? 

Sounds of Silence is an attempt to bring together a number of original
contributions that all address such questions. And while a new encompassing
theory is not yet in sight, this book helps pave the way.

About the NHLS series: The goal of this collection is to put at the
disposal of the linguistic community studies which contribute to a deeper
understanding of the nature of linguistic variation within the generative
tradition that has been developing since the middle of the twentieth century.

The series will pay particular attention to the tension between descriptive
and explanatory adequacy more accurately reformulated as a tension between
the simplicity of the language faculty and its apparent complexity. Volumes
will cover the traditional domain of syntactic studies, but will also
include related areas such as semantics, morphology, phonology, and the
lexicon. The series aims at distributing studies which constitute important
contributions to the field, in particular to the domain of micro- and
macro- variation, which are currently difficult to access.

The particular aim of the series is to publish both theoretical and
empirical studies of language. Although the main focus of the series will
be on generative linguistics, it will not exclude studies of a more general
nature or from different schools of thought, insofar as they contribute to
the advancement of the generative program.
