This volume collects important recent articles by Richard Kayne, one of the top formal linguists in the world. Although the articles range widely in topic and theme, they hang together in that they illustrate the power of the comparative approach, and that they reinforce Kayne's view thatsyntax is generally more complex than it first appears. As with other volumes in this series, the audience for the volume will be formal linguists and syntacticians around the world.
Richard S. Kayne is at New York University.

Editorial Reviews

"Kayne's arguments are very carefully and logically presented, moving from one step to the next before reaching often quite surprising conclusions."--Linguist List 17.1057
