Lexicon and Grammar: The English Syntacticon

This book focuses on the need for a formal lexical theory, in particular one in which lexical insertion occurs at three derivational levels. Its syntactic, subcategorization-based approach fully analyzes constructions such as causatives, light verbs, nominalizations, null arguments, passives, perfects, obligatory control, infinitives, and imperatives. Rich empirical treatments based on English, French, Italian, and Japanese claim that morphology should be fully integrated into syntax. Theoretical constructs of Economy and Abstract Case are reformulated as conditions at three interfaces: the Dictionary, Logical Form, and Phonological Form.

A Unified Theory of Syntactic Categories

This book argues for and characterizes fundamental asymmetries across the four fundamental lexical categories, N, V, A and P. Various chapters include comprehensive data and analysis for English and Spanish present participles, introduce late lexical insertion of free and inflectional morphemes, and examine in detail the predicate nominal and prepositional properties of a P counterpart to the copula. The final chapter gives a full justification for identifying all Complementizers as special sub-cases of the category P.

The original formulation, defense, and elaboration of the Structure-Preserving Constraint: "Major grammatical transformational operations are either root or structure-preserving operations."
