This booklet experiences the background of the interface among morpho-syntax and phonology approximately on the grounds that global conflict II. Structuralist and generative interface considering is gifted chronologically, but in addition idea via idea from the viewpoint of a traditionally observer who in spite of the fact that within the final 3rd of the publication distills classes on the way to determine present-day interface theories, and to set up a listing of homes right interface thought should still or mustn't ever have. The publication additionally introduces modularity, the rationalist idea of the (human) cognitive process that underlies the generative method of language, from a Cognitive technological know-how viewpoint. Modularity is used as a referee for interface theories within the booklet. eventually, the publication locates the interface debate within the panorama of present minimalist syntax and part idea and fosters intermodular argumentation: how do we use homes of morpho-syntactic conception to be able to argue for or opposed to competing theories of phonology (and vice-versa)?

Phonologically motivated allomorphy: Lowenstamm on French ............................................. 3. Overgeneration, direct syntax, modularity and the creation of two distinct computational systems .................... 491 6. Conclusion ................................................................................... 1. Direct merge vs. selective spell-out: a geometric, rather than a computational solution ............................................... 2. Spell-out at every xP stands in the way ................................

It thus proposes a history of the morpho-syntax → phonology interface (in this direction only, Parti I), an Interlude that presents modularity from a Cognitive Science perspective, and a catalogue of design properties that a sound theory of the interface should or must not be based on given the lessons from the historical survey, the Cognitive Science background and the current (minimalist) landscape of generative grammar (Part II). The original Part III exposes my own view of the interface and will (hopefully) make it into an independent book.

5. All xPs are phase heads, direct merge is the antilexicalist way of encoding lexicalist observations...... 6. Direct merge may, but does not need to produce opacity ........................................................................ 4. Phase Impenetrability à la carte? 1. The strong DM claim that all xPs are spelled out imposes process-specific Phase Impenetrability ........ 2. We know that stress is a strange guy anyway............. 5.
