Abstract:

This book assembles a collection of papers in two different domains: formal
syntax and neurolinguistics. Here Moro provides evidence that the two fields
are becoming more and more interconnected and that the new fascinating
empirical questions and results in the latter field cannot be obtained without
the theoretical base provided by the former.

The book is organized in two parts: Part 1 focuses on theoretical and
empirical issues in a comparative perspective (including the nature of
syntactic movement, the theory of locality and a far reaching and influential
theory of copular sentences). Part 2 provides the original sources of some
innovative and pioneering experiments based on neuroimaging techniques
(focusing on the biological nature of recursion and the interpretation of
negative sentences).

Moro concludes with an assessment of the impact of these perspectives on the
theory of the evolution of language. The leading and pervasive idea unifying
all the arguments developed here is the role of symmetry (breaking) in syntax
and in the relationship between language and the human brain.
