Hackl on the Syntax-Semantics Interface in Lingua

An article by Martin Hackl on the Syntax-Semantics Interface has appeared in a special June issue of the journal Lingua.  The purpose of the special issue, as summarized by its editor, Luigi Rizzi, is “to present some fundamental ideas and empirical results of modern syntactic research, and make them available to the scientific communities interested in the study of language as a cognitive capacity” – an especially important task at a time when interest in linguistic questions is increasing within cognitive science.
