Description

The Minimalist Program postulates the equation "Interfaces + Recursion = Language" - a radical reduction of the language to the core mechanism and the interfaces. With contributions by Noam Chomsky and other experts, this volume evaluates the minimalists' proposal against evidence from syntax and semantics by asking questions like the following: What kind of recursive structures can the core generator form? How can properties of language be reduced to interface properties? What LF-interface conditions are predicted by semantic research? Key features Contains the latest update on Chomsky's Theory of Syntax in his own words Famous contributors
