Abstract:

The Minimalist Program is just that, a “program”. It is a challenge for
syntacticians to reexamine the constructs of their models and ask what is
minimally needed in order to accomplish the essential task of syntax –
interfacing between form and meaning. This volume pushes Minimalism to its
empirical and theoretical limits, and brings together some of the most
innovative and radical ideas to have emerged in the attempt to reduce
Universal Grammar to the bare output conditions imposed by these conceptually
necessary interfaces. The contributors include both leading theoreticians and
well-known practitioners of minimalism; the papers thus both respond to broad
questions about the nature of human language and the architecture of grammar,
and provide careful analyses of specific linguistic problems. Overarching
issues of syntactic computation are considered, such as the role of formal
features, the mechanics of movement and the property of displacement, the
construction of words and phrases, the nature of Spell-Out, and, more
generally, the forces driving operations. The volume has the potential to
reach a wide audience, favoring inter-theoretical debate with a concise
state-of-the-art panorama on Minimalism and advances about its future
developments.
