Professor Ferenc Kiefer of the Linguistics Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences was instrumental in bringing early transformational grammar to Europe. His extensive work contributes substantially to making a connection between the grammatical theory and other areas of linguistics. The 17 essays in this book celebrate his career by continuing to explore inter-area research in linguistics: pragmatics in grammar (de Groot, van Riemsdijk, Dressler & Barbaresi, Comrie), semantic compositionality and pragmatics (Wunderlich, Partee, Borschev, Szabo, Bach), logical structures and universals in semantics and pragmatics (van der Auwera, Bultinck, Burton-Roberts, Harnish, Wierzbicka) dialogue and thematic structure (Jonasson, Doherty, Hajicova, Panevova, Sgall, Allwood, Fraser).

Table of Contents
“More often than not, when colleagues and friends join forces to pay tribute to a scholar on his or her nth birthday, the product is just what you would expect: a Festschrift. The variety, orientation, and quality of the contributions to this Festschrift for Ferenc Kiefer, however, make it truly representative of an episode in the recent history of linguistics characterized by the search for a descriptive and explanatory balance between approaches to language as form, meaning, and use. The volume bears witness to the unique position which Kiefer himself occupies in this search.”
