Promotional Information

"Chung and Ladusaw propose and motivate an original and elegant solution to a longstanding problem in syntactic-semantic composition: how to deal with combinations that are neither function-argument application nor function composition. The fruit of a collaboration between two major researchers in the syntax and semantics of natural language, this study will have a lastingimpact on the field."--Emmon Bach, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and SOAS, University of London This book is a gem. It is clearly written, extraordinarily well researched; the argumentation is crisp, to the point, and highly convincing. Restriction and Saturation is sure to open new doors in the understanding of how syntax, morphology, and semantics interact in a theory of grammar. -- Greg Carlson, University of Rochester
