Book

Recursion and human language

Berlin; NY: De Gruyter Mouton, 2010.
Under the general editorship: H. van der Hulst.

In this volume, the issue of recursion is tackled from a variety of angles. Some article cover formal issues regarding the proper characterization or definition of recursion, while others focus on empirical matters by examining the kinds of structures in languages that suggest recursive mechanisms in the grammar. Most articles deal with syntactic phenomena, but several involve morphology, the lexicon and phonology. In addition, we find discussions of evolutionary notions and language disorders, and the broader cognitive context of recursion.
