Title: Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal
Written By: Norbert Hornstein
URL: http://www.blackwellpub.com/asp/book.asp?ref=0631223606
Description:

Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal provides an accessible, in-depth,
and empirically oriented look at Chomsky's Minimalist Program.

This volume facilitates understanding of the concepts of the Minimalist
Program framework and presents a theory which eliminates construal
processes from Universal Grammar. In its place, this book generalizes
movement to promote a rather homogeneous-looking Universal Grammar, bereft
of many of the modules characteristic of GB-inspired proposals for the
structure of Universal Grammar.

Move! articulates a far greater empirical range than any other single work
in the Minimalist Program. It successfully explains the concepts of the
framework, unifies many phenomena in new ways, and enables readers to
understand several long-standing puzzles.
