The book presents a generative account of the relation between the prosodic and syntactic structure in Hungarian. It shows that, in order to account for the various scope readings of a single syntactic structure, one has to consider the respective prosodic realizations suggesting a direct relation between Phonetic Form and Logical Form. Universal principles of this relation are supported by data from a number of languages.
