The Syntax of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworks
Ed. by Alexiadou, Artemis / Rathert, Monika
Series:Interface Explorations [IE] 23
Aims and Scope
The volume explores the syntax of nominalizations, focusing on deverbal and deadjectival nominalizations, but also discussing the syntax of genitives and the syntax of distinct readings of nominalizations. The volume investigates the morpholgy-syntax interface as well as the semantics-syntax interface in the domain of nominalizations. The theoretical frameworks include distributed morphology, and minimalist syntax. Data from a variety of languages are taken into consideration, e.g. Hebrew, Bulgarian, Serbian, French, Spanish, German and English.

"The book is very well-written and clearly structured; the presentation of the
data is made in a clear way, with strict demarcations that eliminate the
possibility of confusion between concepts and ideas. All the authors bring into
their discussion a great variety of examples to support their claims. [...] I think that this book will be of very much help to all researchers who currently work on nominalizations, since it acquaints the reader with several analyses of particular phenomena concerning nominalizations, and it shows thecurrent state of research in the domain."

"The collection offers a range of perspectives on the semantics of
nominalizations and does so, as the title promises, 'across languages and
frameworks'. As such it certainly makes for an inspiring resource for anyone
working on related issues."
