Abstract:

This book is a research monograph that explores the implications of the
strongest minimalist thesis from an antisymmetric perspective. Three empirical
domains are investigated: nominal root compounds in German and English,
nominal gerunds in English and their German counterparts, and small clauses in
Russian and English. A point of symmetry that has the potential of stalling
the derivation emerges in the derivation of all of these constructions.
Building on certain assumptions on how Merge works, this book shows that the
points of symmetry can all be resolved in the same way; despite the fact that
the three empirical domains under investigation are standardly derived from
distinct structural configurations, such as head-head merger in the case of
root compounds, head-phrase merger as it arises from standard
complementation/predication structures for nominal gerunds, and phrase-phrase
merger in small clauses. This book is of interest to all researchers working
on syntax and its interfaces.
