Geis, Michael L., Ed.
A group of syntactic studies, primarily concerning English and German, within the framework of generalized phrase structure grammar include: "English Adverb Placement in Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar" (Belinda L. Brodie), concerning the placement of modal, evaluative, temporal, and verb phrase adverbs; "Syntactic Conditions on Two Types of English Cliticization in Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar" (Annette S. Bissantz), on auxiliary reduction and complementizer contraction; "A New Approach to Feature Instantiation in Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar" (Erhard W. Hinrichs), concerning the interaction of feature instantiation principles and linear precedence statements in several European languages; "The Syntax of Conditional Sentences" (Michael L. Geis), presenting the syntactic side of general theory of syntax of English conditionals; and "German Adjective Agreement in Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar" (Arnold M. Zwicky), arguing that such agreement should be treated as a government phenomenon. (MSE)
