Over the last thirty years, Günther Grewendorf has contributed extensively and creatively to the study of natural language within the generative paradigm. This volume honors him with a collection of papers contributed by colleagues and friends, many of them leading figures in the field as well. The articles provide an up to date view on topics ranging from key questions of theoretical syntax to pragmatic and philosophical issues, reflecting concerns that have figured prominently in Grewendorf's work and thinking. These include the relation between word order and the structuring of information, pro-drop phenomena, verbal syntax, the syntax-morphology interface, clausal typing and the encoding of mood as well as questions of language acquisition and evolution, semantic interpretation and the relation of language and the law. Exploring fundamental issues in the study of language in a clear and accessible way, this collection provides a state of the art overview of current research in formal linguistics. It should be of interest, therefore, not only to experts working in the respective fields, but also to readers interested in the generative enterprise more generally.
