In recent years grammatical relations have come to play a prominent role in linguistic theories. This volume brings together papers that address a variety of theoretical issues involving grammatical relations, drawing on data from a broad range of natural languages. Many of the papers employ analytical devices from linguistic theories such as relational grammar, arc pair grammar, lexical functional grammar, government and binding theory, or head-driven phrase structure grammar. Other papers take a more eclectic stance. The contributors include: Farrell Ackerman, Chris Barker, Joan Bresnan, Diana Cresti, Christopher Culy, William D. Davies, Anna Maria di Sciullo, Stanley Dubinsky, Katarzyna Dziwirek, Patrick Farrell, Kazuhiko Fukushima, Andrew Garrett, Donna Gerdts, Jorge Hankamer, Ki-Sun Hong, Eloise Jelinek, Geraldine Legendre, Errapel Mejias-Bikandi, William McClure, Ignazio Mirto, John Moore, Rosanne Pelletier, Marial Polinsky, Paul Postal, Eduardo Raposo, Richard Rhodes, Carol Rosen, Sara Thomas Rosen, Peter Sells, Juan Uriagereka, Lindsay Whaley, and Annie Zaenen. Katarzyna Dziwirek is a graduate student in linguistics at the University of California, San Diego.
