Research by the staff and advanced students of the North Dakota Summer Institute of Linguistics is presented. In "Verb Agreement and Case Marking in Burushaski" (Stephen R. Willson), an overview of Burushaski morphology and syntax is presented, with special attention to verb agreement and case marking. "A Backwards Binding Construction in Zapotec" (Cheryl A. Black) looks at a construction in which a null subject is coreferential with the possessor of the direct object. An analysis of the Greek noun phrase within the X-bar theory of phrase structure is offered in "On Generating the Greek Noun Phrase" (Cheryl A. Black, Stephen A. Marlett). In Meigu County Yi Tone" (Andy Eatough), tone data from a never before documented Chinese dialect are presented. "A Search for Inflectional Priming Reveals an Effect of Discourse Type on the Lexical Access of Inflected Verbs" (Greg Thomson, Bushra Adnan Zawaydeh) reports the test of a hypothesis about the organization of the mental lexicon.
