Voice at the Interfaces: The syntax, semantics and morphology of the Hebrew verb

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract / Description of output

This monograph presents the most comprehensive description and analysis to date of Hebrew morphology, with an emphasis on the verbal templates. My aim is to develop a theory of argument structure alternations which is anchored in the syntax but has systematic interfaces with the phonology and the semantics. Concretely, I argue for a specific formal system centered around possible values of the head Voice.

The formal assumptions are as similar as possible to those made in work on non-Semitic languages. The first part of the book (four chapters) is devoted to Hebrew; the second part (two chapters) compares the current theory with other approaches to Voice and argument structure in the recent literature.
