  1. Polysynthesis Parameter, The. Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax..

    Baker, Mark C.
    New York : Oxford University Press, 1996.

    Baker argues that polysynthetic languages - in which verbs are built up of many parts and where one verb can act as a whole sentence - are more than an accidental collection of morphological processes; rather they adopt a systematic way of representing predicate-argument relationships, parallel to but distinct from the system used for English.

  3. Principles and parameters in a VSO language : a case study in Welsh

    Roberts, Ian G.
    Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2005.

    Introducing a lucid and succinct analysis of the main syntactic properties of Welsh, Roberts puts forward a general analysis of clause structure, agreement, case-marking, and other phenomena. He also provides us with a comparative analysis of these phenomena in relation to other Celtic languages, Germanic and Romance languages, and English. The study of P&P theory is unprecedented, and this monograph will be a strong addition to the Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax series.
