The Derivation of Anaphoric Relations

The Derivation of Anaphoric relatives resolves a conspicuous challenge for Minimalist idea, the it sounds as if representational nature of the binding stipulations. Hicks adduces a huge number of proof opposed to the binding stipulations utilizing at LF and builds upon the insights of contemporary proposals by way of Hornstein, Kayne, and Reuland by means of lowering them to the center narrow-syntactic operations (specifically, Agree and Merge).

Example text

It appears that this concept of (non)projectivity of the PUB cannot be maintained within minimalism, as it essentially parametrizes what is basically conceived as an economy of derivation principle so that it holds in only a local rather than a global sense. The PUB cannot therefore be incorporated into the minimalist program merely in terms of a reformulation of it as a derivational principle that bars upward movement from one type of A-bar position to another (MS 1994a:18). I suggest that the minimalist implementation of the PUB is an economy of representation principle.

A position is narrowly L-related if it is the specifier or complement of, and broadly L-related if it is adjoined to, a lexical head L or of any of the functional head(s) associated with L. Other positions, such as [Spec, CP], are non-L-related. By the Chain Uniformity Condition, an argument chain is a legitimate LF object because it consists of only L-related positions, but a chain that involves raising from a broadly L-related position to a non-Lrelated position or vice versa is illegitimate; both results that closely mimic the effects of the PUB.

Chapter 6 demonstrates that it is indeed possible to eliminate references to this distinction in the grammar. The 'book' that discusses and develops the theories of binding and coreference in a minimalist UG spans the last three chapters. Chapter 4 presents the basic proposals we make in this regard. The major argument here is for for a distinction between two kinds of coreference, where the coreference that is determined by syntactic binding lies in the domain of the binding theory, but the coreference that holds in its absence is the result of computations of a separate coreference component (Reinhart 1986, 1991, Reinhart and Grodzinsky 1993).
