From the reviews:
"In this book, Toivonen has produced an exceptionally lucid document, one that I do not hesitate to recommend to students and colleagues ... this is that rare volume that contributes to linguistic theory while being highly accessible. The book furthermore strikes an exemplary balance between description and analysis; it is rich in clearly organized and insightfully presented data ... . This book makes an important contribution." (Peter Svenonius, Language, Vol. 84 (3), 2008)
