The amount collects a range of papers offered at a eu Colloquium held on the Università degli Studi di Roma Tre in October 1997. It specializes in phenomena on the boundary among morphology and syntax, and gives analyses for info from the fields of either inflectional and derivational morphology and notice order. Morpho-syntactic phenomena are analysed cross-linguistically and cross-theoretically, as typologically-different languages (European, Afro-Asiatic, American and Austronesian ones) are handled and in comparison in accordance with quite a few techniques, from minimalism and lexical-functional grammar to grammaticalization concept, taking into consideration either synchronic version and diachronic change.
The quantity is split into 3 sections: I. Morphological phenomena and their barriers, II. Morpho-syntax and pragmatics, and III. Morpho-syntax and semantics, because the interplay with the better parts of the grammar is visible as contributing to explaining version in morpho-syntactic behaviour.

Example text

CORBETT Translations of single words like these into full English sentences have sometimes fostered an assumption that their differences are negligible, that whether an idea is expressed morphologically in a single word or syntactically in several is an uninteresting accident of form. Several lines of research have aimed at describing morphological structures in syntactic terms (Lees 1960, Postal 1962, Sadock 1980, 1985, Baker 1988, 1995, 1996, among others). This approach has not been uncontroversial.

The real nature of constructions The constructions under examination have a parallel in Modern Hebrew (MH), in which there exist particular nominal forms, the so-called Construct State Nominals (CSNs), to which Italian compound-like phrases can be partially compared. CSNs are words formed by two nouns: the first noun, which is the head of the whole construction, is stress lacking (cf.
