2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Chomsky’s Remarks on Nominalization. The article has had an enduring major influence on generative theorizing in the past 50 years, and remains, to this day, a pivot for much contemporary research.
On the occasion of this anniversary, we invite contributions that bear on both the theoretical and empirical issues in that article, and in particular issues concerning the syntax, morphology, and semantics of derived nominals, issues concerning verbal gerunds, with or without a comparison to deverbal nominals, and issues having to do with broader views of the Lexicon/syntax divide.
We are particularly interested in integrating a broader typological perspective on the relevant issues.
