Abstract:

Natural languages offer many examples of "displacement," i.e. constructions
in which a non-local expression is critical for some grammatical end. Two
central examples include phenomena such as raising and passive on the one
hand, and control on the other. Though each phenomenon is an example of
displacement, they have been theoretically distinguished. Movement rules
have generated the former and formally very different construal rules, the
latter. The Movement Theory of Control challenges this
differentiation and argues that the operations that generate the two
constructions are the same, the differences arising from the positions
through which the displaced elements are moved. In the context of the
Minimalist Program, reducing the class of basic operations is
methodologically prized.

This volume is a collection of original papers that argue for this approach
to control on theoretical and empirical grounds as well. The papers also
develop and constrain the movement theory to account for novel phenomena
from a variety of languages.
