Syntactic dependencies are often non-local: They can involve two positions in
a syntactic structure whose correspondence cannot be captured by invoking
concepts like minimal clause or predicate/argument structure. Relevant
phenomena include long-distance movement, long-distance reflexivization,
long-distance agreement, control, non-local deletion, long-distance case
assignment, consecutio temporum, extended scope of negation, and semantic
binding of pronouns. A recurring strategy pursued in many contemporary
syntactic theories is to model cases of non-local dependencies in a strictly
local way, by successively passing on the relevant information in small
domains of syntactic structures.

The present volume brings together eighteen articles that investigate
non-local dependencies in movement, agreement, binding, scope, and deletion
constructions from different theoretical backgrounds (among them versions of
the Minimalist Program, HPSG, and Categorial Grammar), and based on evidence
from a variety of typologically distinct languages. This way, advantages and
disadvantages of local treatments of non-local dependencies become evident.
Furthermore, it turns out that local analyses of non-local phenomena developed
in different syntactic theories (spanning the derivational/declarative divide)
often may not only share identical research questions but also rely on
identical research strategies.
