Grammatical Relations

Theoretical Approaches to Empirical Questions

edited by Clifford S. Burgess, Katarzyna Dziwirek, and Donna B. Gerdts

Grammatical relations are central to all current syntactic theories. This volume contains the papers from the Sixth Biennial Conference on Grammatical Relations, held at Simon Fraser University, September 16-18, 1993. The papers address a number of empirical issues in many different languages from the viewpoint of various theories.

Clifford S. Burgess and a Professor at Simon Fraser University. Katarzyna Dziwirek is an Associate Professor in the Department of Slavic at the University of Washington. Donna B. Gerdts is a Professor of Lingustics at Simon Fraser University.
