Abstract:

"Although standardly recognized by linguists of many diverse theoretical
persuasions, finiteness continues to figure among [...] the most poorly
understood concepts of linguistic theory”. This was eloquently stated by
Ledgeway (2000, 2007) and remains true even today. The present volume thus
aims to shed some much needed light on this area of linguistic theorizing,
with eleven chapters approaching finiteness phenomena from the fields of
syntax, semantics, language acquisition, and Creole studies, and providing
data from a range of different languages. Traditionally, approaches to
finiteness within the Principles and Parameters framework have seen as their
main aim to understand the relation between the morphological exponents of
finiteness and the syntactic operations seemingly depending on these
exponents. The papers in this volume mostly take their point of departure from
this more traditional view on finiteness, before elaborating on, modifying and
diverging from this tradition in novel and interesting ways.
