Abstract:

This is the first and only book to provide an introduction to the
fundamental theoretical issues of phrase structure in the Principles &
Parameters approach to syntax. It provides in-depth analyses of basic
phrase structure concepts and detailed examinations of different
theoretical positions from within the Principles & Parameters
tradition.


The book approaches phrase structure through close discussion of
Chomsky's The Minimalist Program (1995), Kayne's Antisymmetry of
Syntax (1994) and the author's own A Theory of Phrase Markers and the
Extended Base (1996), with a chapter devoted to each of these
books. Throughout, the focus is almost exclusively on theoretical
considerations such as primitive and derived concepts, theoretical
architecture, simplicity and naturalness of extensions of basic ideas,
internal coherence and consistency, and explanatory adequacy, with
natural language data and analysis playing virtually no role.

The structuring concepts and questions include the relation of
argument structure to syntactic structure; headedness and
endocentricity; the status of functional versus lexical categories;
X-Bar Theory; and the respective statuses of precedence and dominance.
