Provides an introduction to information structure and discusses a range of phenomena on the syntax-information structure interface. This book examines whether information structure maps onto syntax, and if so how. It covers such topics as architectures of grammar, word order, the lexicon and information structure interface, and cognitive aspects.   Read "The Syntax-Information Structure Interface Evidence from Spanish and English" by Eugenia Casielles-Suárez available from Rakuten Kobo.

This introduction to syntax-information structure interface book role of information structure in grammar discusses a wide range of phenomena on the syntax-information structure interface. It examines theories of information structure and considers their effectiveness in explaining whether and how information structure maps onto syntax in 4/5(1).

The experimental methodology and information structure assumptions employed create several testable predictions. The results suggest that, in a wide range of contexts, preverbal subjects behave like canonical elements, and not clitic left-dislocated (CLLD) elements.

Pages: –   This article argues for a cartographic analysis of binding, which preserves a syntactic approach in terms of c-command and incorporates information structure.

We claim that an extensive account of the binding effects must integrate a sentence structural configuration where Topic always projects at the left periphery of the clause. This hypothesis accounts for the same connectivity effects. THE MORPHOLOGY-SYNTAX INTERFACE xiii nominal.

It examines theories of information structure and considers their effectiveness in explaining whether and how information structure maps onto syntax in : Nomi Erteschik-Shir.

Recent acquisitional studies reveal that formal properties at the lexicon-syntax interface are in place before discursive properties at the syntax-discourse interface.

It has been argued that this phenomenon results from learners’ deficits with interpretable discursive features like [focus]. This study claims that the phenomenon derives from learners’ deficits with the un-interpretable.
