This volume of papers selected from the 11th International Conference on the Structure of Hungarian addresses current topics in Hungarian linguistics, focusing on their theoretical implications.The papers in syntax investigate the complement zone of nouns, the syntax of case assigning adpositions, sluicing in relative clauses, generic/habitual readings in clauses containing a free choice item, the argument structure of experiencer verbs in Hungarian, and cataphoric propositional pronoun insertion in Hungarian and German. The papers in morphosyntax analyze morphological alienability splits and the manifestation of the Inverse Agreement Constraint in Hungarian. The studies in phonetics and phonology inquire into regressive voicing assimilation in Hungarian and Slovak, and explore the predictions of the Functional Load Hypothesis for stress-marking and the relationship between the phonetic and phonological properties of /a:/ in Hungarian.<br />The volume will appeal not just to scholars working on Hungarian, but to a general audience of theoretical linguists.<br />

Subjects: Uralic languages; Generative linguistics; Theoretical linguistics; Syntax
