Traditionally the study of syntax is restricted to the study of what goes on within the boundaries of the prosodic sentence. Although the nature of clause combining <i>within</i> a prosodic sentence has always been a central concern of traditional syntax (in GG, e.g. it underlies important research on deletion and anaphora), work within a <i>discourse analysis framework</i> has hardly been done. Analyses like this are given in the present volume.

Subjects: Discourse studies; Pragmatics; Theoretical linguistics
