Abstract:

Standard conceptions of Locality aim to establish that a dependency
between two positions may not span too long a distance. This book
explores the opposite conception, Anti-Locality: Don't move too
close. The model of clause structure, syntactic computation, and
locality concerns Kleanthes Grohmann develops makes crucial use of
derivational sub-domains, Prolific Domains, each encapsulating
particular context information (thematic, agreement, discourse). The
Anti-Locality Hypothesis is the attempt to exclude anti-local movement
from the grammar by banning movement within a Prolific Domain, a Bare
Output Condition. The flexible application of the operation Spell Out,
coupled with an innovative view on grammatical formatives, leads to a
natural caveat: Copy Spell Out. Grohmann explores a theory of
Anti-Locality relevant to all three Prolific Domains in the clausal
layer as well as the nominal layer, and offers a unified account of
Standard and Anti-Locality regarding clause-internal movement and
operations across clause boundaries, revisiting successive cyclicity.
