These seven original essays commissioned in tribute to MIT Philosophy Professor Sylvain Bromberger present some of the most exciting research being conducted today in linguistics. Each essay is informed by Bromberger's ongoing inquiry into how we "come to know that there are things in the world that we don't know." Included in the collection is the edited version of Noam Chomsky's minimalist paper.
A minimalist programme for linguistic theory, Noam Chomsky; on argument structure and the lexical expression of syntactic relations, Kenneth Hale and Samuel Jay Keyser; distributed morphology and the pieces of inflection, Morris Halle and Alex Marantz; integrity of prosodic constituents and the domain of syllabification rules in Spanish and Catalan, Hames W. Harris; interrogatives, James Higginbotham; triggering science forming capacity through linguistic inquiry, Maya Honda and Wayne O'Neil; evidence for metrical constituency, Michael Kenstowicz.
