By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Logical Form: From GB to Minimalism
Written By: Norbert Hornstein

The aim of this book is to review critically grammatical research into
logical form over the past 20 years and to reconsider some of its major
themes in the light of recent theoretical innovations. The book focuses
especially on uantifier Raising and a host of conditions that have been
proposed a constrain valid
LF phrase markers. The second section considers what properties a
"minimalist" LF should have. This material is by its nature more
speculative. Among the topics broached are anticedent contained deletion
constructions, weak crossover configurations and multiple interrogatives.
