Against the background of the past half century's typological and
generative work on comparative syntax, this volume brings together 16
papers considering what we have learned and may still be able to learn
about the nature and extent of syntactic variation. More specifically, it
offers a multi-perspective critique of the Principles and Parameters
approach to syntactic variation, evaluating the merits and shortcomings of
the pre-Minimalist phase of this enterprise and considering and
illustrating the possibilities opened up by recent empirical and
theoretical advances. Contributions focus on four central topics: firstly,
the question of the locus of variation, whether the attested variation may
plausibly be understood in parametric terms and, if so, what form such
parameters might take; secondly, the fate of one of the most prominent
early parameters, the Null Subject Parameter; thirdly, the matter of
parametric clusters more generally; and finally, acquisition issues.
