Book Information

   

Title: Minimal Words in a Minimal Syntax
Series Title: Lingvistic Aktuell/Linguistics Today, 19
Description:

In Minimal Words in a Minimal Syntax the author combines a detailed description of the morphological structure of words in Swedish with a new approach to theoretical morphology based on the Minimalist Program of Chomsky (1995) (as developed for syntactic structure). The X-bar theoretic approach to word structure of the Principles and Parameters framework is replaced by a rule free approach incorporating only Merge and Move as structure building devices.
