Pp. vii, 292. isBN 9781501510588. $114.99 (Hb). reviewed by Tiaoyuan Mao, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Manchun Dai, Beijing Foreign Studies University Compositionality, order, projection/labeling, and displacement are core properties of concern when inquiring into universal grammar (UG), and the relevant questions about labeling need further exploration (Chomsky 2013). Basically, labeling provides the necessary information for syntactic objects (sOs) to be interpreted at interfaces. Chomsky (2013, 2015) ignited the dis- cussion when formulating two proposals for labeling: symmetry-breaking movement and shared feature + Agree. Labels and roots, edited by Leah Bauke and Andreas Blümel, con- tributes to the intensive discussion about the properties of labeling and its interaction with roots. The volume is based on the Labels and roots workshop in Germany in 2014. it not only eluci- dates the syntactic and semantic contributions that lexical categories (e.g. roots) could make to syntactic derivation and generation, but also delves into issues closely related to roots and label- ing.
