Vulchanova, Mila et al.(eds.) - Grammar & Beyond
On January 12th 2005, Lars Hellan, one of the pioneers of generative linguistics in Norway, turned 60. His contribution to the field of linguistics is unusually rich and varied, comprising often groundbreaking work on syntax, semantics, the lexicon, the syntax-semantics interface, noun phrase structure, anaphora, computational linguistics, comparative Scandinavian linguistics, African linguistics, Principles and Parameters Theory, Montague Grammar, Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar, to mention just some of the areas to which he has made a contribution.The articles published here are written by some of the most internationally well-known scholars active in linguistics today. The themes and topics discussed are rich and varied, like Lars Hellan?s own work, ranging from multiverb constructions in West African languages, to langauge evolution from primates to humans, to what is right and wrong about ?little v.? They are a worthy tribute to Lars Hellan and his work.
