The overarching theme of this volume is one of the central concerns of
syntactic theory: How local is syntax, and what are the measures of
syntactic locality? It is argued here that movement and anaphoric relations
are governed by a unified concept of locality: the phase. On an empirical
level, Beyond Coherence brings together three strands of research on
German syntax: 'coherence', the study of (reduced) infinitive
constructions; the possessor dative construction, with a dative nominal
playing the dual role of possessor and affectee; and binding, the
distribution of anaphors and pronominals. These apparently disparate areas
of research intersect in that the locality constraints on the possessor
dative construction and binding allow the two phenomena to serve as probes
for infinitival clause size. Offering a Minimalist 'possessor raising' and
phase-based binding account, this work culminates in a discussion of the
phase as the key to the various opacity effects observed in the book.
