Revealing Structure

Papers in Honor of Larry M. Hyman

edited by Eugene Buckley, Thera Crane, and Jeff Good

Drawing from a wide range of perspectives in the analysis of grammatical structures, the papers collected in this book are unified not by linguistic subfield, but by the investigative method they employ in revealing grammatical patterns. Revealing Structure explores this style of investigation across phonology, morphology, and syntax. Dedicated to celebrated linguist Larry Hyman, author of such books as A Theory of Phonological Weight, this volume also features data from diverse languages—with a special emphasis on the languages of Africa‐making it unique among existing linguistics collections.

Eugene Buckley is associate professor of linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. Thera Crane is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of World Cultures at the University of Helsinki. Jeff Good is associate professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Buffalo, State University of New York.
