This volume explores and develops the framework of phases (so-called
Phase Theory), first introduced in Chomsky (2000). The antecedents of such
framework go back to the well-known notion of "cycle", which concerns
broader notions, such as compositionality, locality, and economy conditions.
Within generative grammar, this idea of the cycle took a concrete form in the
fifties, with Chomsky, Halle, and Lukoff's (1955) pioneering work on stress,
later on extended in Chomsky & Halle (1968), Halle & Vergnaud (1987), and
further applied to morpho-phonology (Mascaró 1976 and Kiparski 1982),
semantics (Jackendoff 1969), and syntax (Chomsky 1965, 1973). In recent
years, several attempts have tried to refine and reformulate the cycle (Freidin
1999, Lasnik 2006, Uriagereka 2011). Such was the goal behind explorations
on bounding nodes (Chomsky 1973) and barriers (Chomsky 1986), for which
there is substantial empirical evidence showing how computation proceeds in
a step-by-step fashion. Much work within minimalism has been devoted to
investigate the nature of phases and their relevance for other areas of
linguistic inquiry. Although it has been argued that phases have natural
correlates at the interfaces, it is still unclear what the defining properties of
these domains are, whether they can help us understand language
acquisition, language variation, or language evolution. This book aims at
addressing these questions, sharpening our understanding about phases and
the nature of the Faculty of Language.
