Abstract

This article first briefly exemplifies a number of morphological phenomena which have syntactic repercussions, to illustrate the range of issues investigators confront. It then sketches a variety of grammatical architectures and their general approach to the inter-action between morphology and syntax, paying attention to what empirical territory is considered the domain of independent morphological processes vs. the domain ofprop-erly syntactic processes in each. Finally, it provides a more in-depth look at the theory of Distributed Morphology, and briefly describes specific problems associated with syn-tacticocentric approaches to derivational morphology at the interface.
