This volume concerns the morpho-syntax of numeral constructions in Polish, with references to other (Slavic) languages. It is set in the generative-minimalist framework, with elements of nano-syntax, and leads to a comprehensive understanding of how numeral phrases are built and why numeral subjects show exceptional case and agreement properties.

Numeral constructions in Polish are known for their complex morpho-syntax: in particular, depending on the type, case and syntactic context, the numeral may show properties of the adjective or the noun. This volume presents a comprehensive analysis of these constructions set in the current generative-minimalist model of grammar, with elements of nano-syntax. The authors pay particular attention to a feature-based derivation of the numeral construction in its different versions, including complex multiplicative numerals, as well as its distribution in the clause. Numerals in the subject position, with their peculiar case and agreement features become a focal point of attention. Their properties receive a principled account through the use of the case projection sequence and disciplined movements within it.


Jacek Witkos is Professor of Linguistics at Poznan University (AMU). His interests focus on generative syntax, specifically English-Polish comparative studies. He has authored and edited over seventy publications on such topics as the structure and derivation of infinitives, the distribution of pronominals and the derivation and interpretation of interrogatives.

Piotr Ceglowski, Dominika Dziubala-Szrejbrowska and Paulina Leska focus their research on many aspects of the formal comparative analysis of the syntax and morphology of Polish, including the internal structure of nominal expressions, the coding of topic/focus - related information, double object constructions, as well as syntax processing.
