Since no implicational relations suggested for finiteness parameters so far have been without exceptions, it is argued that finiteness is a clausal notion which is best characterized by independent criteria belonging to different linguistic components: morphology, syntax, and semantics. There is no uniform dimension called ‘finiteness’. Instead, the relevant category (if it is a category) is sensitive to different kinds of cross-cutting information and each of them can vary independently.
