Generative Studies in Basque Linguistics

José Ignacio Hualde (Editor), Jon Ortiz de Urbina (Editor)

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


In part due to its exotic place within the languages of Europe, but mainly because of its basic typological differences with better-described languages, Basque has often attracted the interest of linguists of very different theoretical persuasions. This book presents a collection of articles which are representative of work being done on Basque at the moment from a generative perspective. Most of the major issues in Basque Syntax, Morphology and Phonology are examined in this book and the implications of the Basque data for theories of universal grammar are made explicit.
