Working Papers in Grammatical Theory and Discourse Structure

Interactions of Morphology, Syntax, and Discourse

edited by Masayo Iida, Stephen Wechsler, and Draga Zec

This volume of working papers emerged from a workshop on Morphology/Syntax/Discourse Interactions held in the summer of 1985 at CSLI, Stanford University. The central objective of the workshop was to discover phenomena that are empirically found to occur. The papers included in the volume are refined and augmented versions of the material originally presented in the workshop and deal with different aspects of interactions between syntax and the other subsystems of the grammar.

Masayo Iida was a senior research scientist at Fujitsu Software Corporation at the time of this publication. Stephen Wechsler an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin at the time of this publication. Graga Zec was an assistant professor of linguistics at Yale University at the time of this publication.
