Derivation and Explanation in the Minimalist Program899Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Derivation and Explanation in the Minimalist Program presents accessible, cutting-edge research on an enduring and fundamental question confronting all linguistic inquiry - the respective roles of derivation and representation.The volume explores ways in which the Minimalist perspective on transformational rules and their iterative application facilitates deeper explanation than is possible within Government and Binding theory. Through discussion of a wide range of phenomena, the majority of papers in the volume present arguments in favor of derivational approaches, although alternative, representational perspectives are also included. Derivation and Explanation in the Minimalist Program is essential reading for anyone interested in the foundational yet contemporary issue of derivation versus representation and its relation to current Minimalist method, analysis, and the quest for explanation.

'In this outstanding collection, leading researchers explore ways in which the rich, complex, and apparently varied phenomena of the languages of the world can be explained in terms of uniform principles of optimal design and external conditions that must be satisfied if language is to be usable at all. Following several different paths, these highly original, carefully crafted, and challenging essays open important new directions for research into some of the most fascinating issues of the study of language, with far-reaching implications beyond.' Noam Chomsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
