This book, first published in 1988, proposes an analysis of Welsh syntax within the theory of Government and Binding (GB). The main focus of the study is the theory of empty elements and the role of agreement phenomena in relation to empty categories.
The study of the Celtic family of languages has emerged as an increasingly fruitful area of research both inside and outside GB theory. Written within the GB framework, this book provides a substantial description of some areas of Welsh syntax. Successive chapters deal with basic word order in main and embedded clauses, the null subject constructions, cliticisation and agreement, relative clauses, topicalisation and wh-questions, and passivisation. This title will be of interest to students of language and linguistics.
