Contents:
Frontmatter; Contents; Contributors; Introduction; On the syntax of episodic vs. dispositional -er nominals; On the morphological make-up of nominalizations in Serbian; A syntactic account of affix rivalry in Spanish nominalizations; The syntax of deverbal nominals in Bulgarian; Deadjectival nominalizations and the structure of the adjective; Event-structure constraints on nominalization; Aspect and argument structure of deverbal nominalizations: A split vP analysis; Post-nominal genitives and prepositional phrases inGerman: A uniform analysis; Backmatter.
Summary: The volume explores the syntax of nominalizations, focusing on deverbal and deadjectival nominalizations, but also discussing the syntax of genitives and the syntax of distinct readings of nominalizations. The volume investigates the morpholgy-syntax interface as well as the semantics-syntax interface in the domain of nominalizations. The theoretical frameworks include distributed morphology, and minimalist syntax. Data from a variety of languages are taken into consideration, e.g. Hebrew, Bulgarian, Serbian, French, Spanish, German and English.
