About this item

Contributed by scholars from Europe, North America, and Japan, the 10 essays in this volume were first presented at the workshop “Labels and Roots,” at the conference of the German Linguistic Society in 2014 on key questions regarding labeling and endocentricity and roots. They consider what syntactic labels do, within the syntax and morphology, and for semantics and phonology; the content of a label and whether it is drawn from one or both parts of a complex object; how generally predictable labels are; whether they are components of a structure or determined by a labeling procedure or outsourced from the syntax; whether lexical roots have morpho-syntactic features that serve as their labels or whether their syntactic/morphological categories are provided by formal elements with which they combine; and how labeling might be involved in more diverse syntactic phenomena like agreement, case, and movement. They discuss the computational system of syntax, its workings, the motivation and background for its ingredients, and its procedural/derivational character, and how structures formed in a formal syntax receive an interpretation at the sensorimotor and meaning side. They address syntactic and extrasyntactic aspects and consequences of Chomsky’s “Problems of Projections” and its extensions; how, in a phase-theoretical framework, labeling interacts with cyclic transfer; how labeling interacts with the sensorimotor component and affects linear order and how properties of the phonological system can be associated with labeling; and open class lexical units and the topmost sentential node.
