Abstract:

This monograph studies issues of current minimalist concern, such as
whether differences in the expression of argument and syntactic structure
can all be attributed to the parameterization of specific functional heads.

In particular, this book studies in-depth the extent to which variation in
the expression of causation, available both intra- and crosslinguistically,
can be accounted for by appealing only to the microparameterization of the
causative head, Cause, as previously argued for by linguists such as
Pylkkänen. It concludes that the microparameterization of Cause may explain
some major characteristics associated with causatives, but it cannot be
regarded as the only explanation behind variation in these structures. The
book includes relevant discussion on argument structure and looks in detail
at languages, such as the Uto-Aztecan Hiaki, that have not received much
attention before. It is mostly intended for an audience interested in
theoretical approaches to argument structure and variation.
