By Lunella Mereu (Ed.)

The quantity collects a variety of papers awarded at a ecu Colloquium held on the Università degli Studi di Roma Tre in October 1997. It specializes in phenomena on the boundary among morphology and syntax, and offers analyses for information from the fields of either inflectional and derivational morphology and observe order. Morpho-syntactic phenomena are analysed cross-linguistically and cross-theoretically, as typologically-different languages (European, Afro-Asiatic, American and Austronesian ones) are handled and in comparison in keeping with various methods, from minimalism and lexical-functional grammar to grammaticalization concept, considering either synchronic version and diachronic change.
The quantity is split into 3 sections: I. Morphological phenomena and their barriers, II. Morpho-syntax and pragmatics, and III. Morpho-syntax and semantics, because the interplay with the better parts of the grammar is obvious as contributing to explaining version in morpho-syntactic behaviour.
