Abstract:

Before she died in 2007, Tanya Reinhart had gone a long way towards 
developing the Theta System, a theory in which formal features defining the 
thematic relations of verbs are encoded in the lexicon, enabling an interface 
between the lexical component and the computational system/syntax, 
directly, and the Inference system, indirectly.

This book considers the recent results and evaluations of Tanya Reinhart's 
research in both theoretical and experimental domains. After a 
comprehensive presentation of the framework by the editors, distinguished 
linguists from all over the world examine the underpinning of the Theta 
System, compare the framework to alternative approaches, and consider its 
implications for the architecture of grammar. In addition, they consider and 
exemplify the applications of the system and offer improvements and 
extensions.

The book is an important contribution to linguistic research. It engages in the 
key dialogue between competing lexicalist and syntactic approaches to 
lexico-semantic problems and does so in the context of an impressive array 
of new empirical data ranging from Germanic, Romance, and Slavic to Ugro-
Finnish, and Semitic languages.
