Explorations in Maximizing Syntactic Minimization free pdf This volume presents a series of papers written by Epstein, Kitahara and Seely, each of which explores fundamental linguistic questions and analytical mechanisms proposed in recent minimalist work, specifically concerning recent analyses by Noam Chomsky. The collection includes eight papers by the collaborators (one with Miki Obata), plus three additional papers, each individually authored by Epstein, Kitahara and Seely, that cover a range of related topics including: the minimalist commitment to explanation via simplification- the Strong Minimalist Thesis- strict adherence to simplest Merge, Merge (X, Y) = {X, Y}, subject to 3rd factor constraints- and state-of-the-art concepts and consequences of Chomsky's most recent proposals. For instance, the volume clarifies and explores: the properties of Merge, feature inheritance and Agree- the nature of phases, cyclicity and countercyclicity- the properties of Transfer- the interpretation of features and their values and the role formal features play in the form and function of syntactic operations- and the specific properties of derivations, partially ordered rule application, and the nature of interface representations. At the cutting edge of scholarship in generative syntax, this volume will be an essential resource for syntax researchers seeking to better understand the minimalist program.
