This volume contains a selection of papers from the 12th International Conference on the Structure of Hungarian (Leiden, 2015). The contributions cover a wide range of topics and their significance in generative theorizing.

The papers about morphosyntax focus on the formation of comparative clauses, the behavior of particle verbs, scope taking in deverbal nominal constructions, measure constructions, classifier constructions, the mass/count distinction as well as focus and quantifier scope.

The papers about phonology investigate coexisting patterns of variation in vowel harmony, the representational account of vowel harmony and the nature of heteromorphemic vowel sequences.

While the focus of the volume is on Hungarian, comparison is made with several other languages, such as English, German and Portuguese among others.

The broad range of topics discussed in this volume will appeal both to scholars working on Hungarian and to a general audience of generative linguists.
