This volume presents a collection of papers of recent generative
research into the properties of phrasal and feature movement, which
explore these key syntactic phenomena from different angles and across
languages. The papers advance or build on models of movement which
capitalize either on generalized feature movement or on generalized
remnant movement. Both these approaches attempt to develop a
restrictive theory of movement aiming at a simplification of the
operations of the computational system. Despite the fact that they are
so different technically, generalized feature movement and generalized
remnant movement both push the theory of movement to the same
direction in two important respects: (a) Elimination of head
movement. (b) Elimination of covert movement. The book is of primary
interest to researchers and students in theoretical linguistics and
syntactic theory.
