The architecture of the human language faculty has been one of the main foci of the linguistic research of the last half century. This branch of linguistics, broadly known as Generative Grammar, is concerned with the formulation of explanatory formal accounts of linguistic phenomena with the ulterior goal of gaining insight into the properties of the 'language organ'. The series comprises high quality monographs and collected volumes that address such issues. The topics in this series range from phonology to semantics, from syntax to information structure, from mathematical linguistics to studies of the lexicon.

What is CVCV?
Introduction
Open versus closed syllables in CVCV
A unified theory of vowel - zero alternations
Alternating vowels are present in the lexicon
The beginning of the word : "#" = CV
The coda mirror
Consequences of the coda mirror : no confusion between government and licensing anymore
A syntax of phonology
Lateral relations are head-final : length in phonology
Syllabic and trapped consonants in CVCV
Why CVCV?
Introduction
Principles of argumentation I : disjunctive contexts
Principles of argumentation II : representations and their function
Principles of argumentation III : generality of processes
Principles of argumentation IV : a better solution for extrasyllabicity than extrasyllabicity
Argument one : languages without initial restrictions
Argument two : what you get is NOT what you see : Tina Turner was wrong
Argument three : description vs. explanation of restrictions on word-initial consonant clusters
Argument four : lower : empty nuclei and regressive internuclear relations have been used for over 30 years in the analysis of Slavic vowel-zero alternations
Argument five : the life of "yers" outside of Slavic and in locations where vowels do not alternate with zero
Argument six : unified representations for the syllable and stress
Argument seven : licensing power of final empty nuclei parameterised : paired vs. impaired behaviour of internal and final codas
Argument eight : the coda mirror
Argument nine : news from the yer context : what happens in codas and before an unpronounced alternating vowel
Argument ten : what sonorants do in codas : a unified theory of melodic reaction on positional plight
