The book contains eleven articles on theoretical problems in Albanian, Hungarian, Polish, (Old) Russian, Romanian, and the South Slavic languages of Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbo-Croatian, and Slovenian. They cover topics such as clitics, head and phrasal movement, the structure of the DP, and clause structure. A number of papers refer to and make systematic comparisons with languages outside the region, including Breton, German, Hebrew, and Welsh. Since the papers were selected from an international conference in Spring 1998 in Szeged, Hungary, they represent the crossing of boundaries in three senses: the physical sense, by comparing genetically unrelated languages, and by examining properties of movement across categories.<br />
