In This Book Leading Scholars Address The Issues Surrounding The Syntax-phonology Interface. These Principally Concern Whether The Phonological Component Can Influence Syntax And If So, How Far And In What Ways: Such Questions Are A Prominent Component Of Current Work On The Biolinguistics Of Speech Production And Reception. The Problematic Relationship Between Syntax And Phonology Has Long Piqued The Interest Of Syntacticians And Phonologists: The Connections Between Sound And Structure Have Played A Key Role In Generative Grammar From Its Inception, Initially Relating To Focus And The Prosodic Marking Of Constituent Structure And More Recently To Word-order Constraints. This Book Advances This Work In A Series Of Critical And Interlinked Presentations Of The Latest Thinking And Research. In Doing So It Draws On Data From A Wide Range Of Languages, Evidence From Disordered Language, And Related Work In Language Acquisition.--jacket.
