Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal provides an accessible,
in-depth, and empirically oriented look at Chomsky's Minimalist

This volume facilitates understanding of the concepts of the
Minimalist Program framework and presents a theory which eliminates
construal processes from Universal Grammar. In its place, this book
generalizes movement to promote a rather homogeneous-looking Universal
Grammar, bereft of many of the modules characteristic of GB-inspired
proposals for the structure of Universal Grammar.

Move! articulates a far greater empirical range than any other single
work in the Minimalist Program. It successfully explains the concepts
of the framework, unifies many phenomena in new ways, and enables
readers to understand several long-standing puzzles.
