By Tobias Scheer

This e-book experiences the background of the interface among morpho-syntax and phonology approximately because international battle II. Structuralist and generative interface considering is gifted chronologically, but additionally thought by way of idea from the viewpoint of a traditionally observer who even if within the final 3rd of the publication distills classes on the way to examine present-day interface theories, and to set up a listing of houses right interface thought should still or mustn't ever have.

Modularity is used as a referee for interface theories within the publication. eventually, the booklet locates the interface debate within the panorama of present minimalist syntax and section idea and fosters intermodular argumentation: how do we use houses of morpho-syntactic concept so that it will argue for or opposed to competing theories of phonology (and vice-versa)?
