About the Authors
  • Guglielmo Cinque is one of the world's leading theoretical syntacticians, and is particularly known for his application of recent theory to the analysis of Italian. This volume brings together eleven of his essays, some published here for the first time and others not hitherto easily available. Cinque explores a wide range of aspects of Italian syntax, and compares Italian with the syntax of other Romance, and also Germanic, languages. This volume will be welcomed by all those working on Italian syntax, and on theoretical syntax more generally.

    • Examines aspects of Italian syntax that have not previously been studied
    • Comparative approach looks also at English and at other Romance languages
    • Strikes a balance between detailed analyses and the formulation of general theories
