The Minimalist Program is a trend in recent generative syntax which subjects to critical scrutiny -
and, if possible, eliminates - all constructs that are not virtually conceptually necessary.
Since the minimal task of syntax is to mediate between form and meaning, the question is to
what extent all aspects of our model of syntax derive from the bare output conditions imposed
by these conceptually essential interfaces with form and meaning. More generally, one can ask
about the overall architecture of such a grammar: What levels of representation does a viable
minimalist grammar need to have?; How are syntactic representations constructed?; and How are
these representations interpreted at the interfaces?
The purpose of the proposed workshop is to bring together scholars concerned with these broader
issues, but who are also engaged in providing detailed analysis to specific linguistic problems
and who work on a variety of languages, in order to explore new ways of understanding the
organization of grammar and the workings of language.
