Abstract:

This monograph proposes a minimalist, phase-based approach to the
derivation of coordinate structures, utilizing the operations Copy and
Match to account for both the symmetries and asymmetries of coordination.
Data are drawn primarily from English, German and Dutch. The basic
assumptions are that all coordinate structures are symmetric to some degree
(in contrast to parasitic gap and many verb phrase ellipsis constructions),
and these symmetries, especially with ellipsis, allow syntactic derivations
to utilize Copy and Match in interface with active memory for economizing
with gaps and assuring clarity of interpretation. With derivations
operating at the feature level, troublesome properties of coordinate
structures such as cross-categorial and non-constituent coordination,
violations of the Coordinate Structure Constraint, as well as coordinate
ellipsis (Gapping, RNR, Left-Edge Ellipsis) are accounted for without
separate mechanisms or conditions applicable only to coordinate structures.
The proposal provides support for central assumptions about the structure
of West Germanic.
