description

In this major new book, John A. Hawkins presents a new theory of linear ordering in syntax. He argues that processing can provide a simple, functional explanation for syntactic rules of ordering, as well as for the selection among ordering variants in languages and structures in which variation is possible. Insights from generative syntax, typological studies of language universals, and psycholinguistic studies of language processing are combined to show that there is a profound correspondence between performance and grammar.

Critique de chapters.indigo

This is the first book to systematically investigate the processing basis of syntactic rules and of cross-linguistic regularities. Other areas of syntax that are discussed include universals of relative clause formation and the head of phrase generalization.
