Title: Dimensions of Movement
Subtitle: From features to remnants
Edited By: Artemis Alexiadou
Elena Anagnostopoulou
Sjef Barbiers
Hans-Martin Gärtner
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA_48
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 48
Description:

This volume presents a collection of papers of recent generative research into the properties of phrasal and feature movement, which explore these key syntactic phenomena from different angles and across languages. The papers advance or build on models of movement which capitalize either on generalized feature movement or on generalized remnant movement. Both these approaches attempt to develop a restrictive theory of movement aiming at a simplification of the operations of the computational system. Despite the fact that they are so different technically, generalized feature movement and generalized remnant movement both push the theory of movement to the same direction in two important respects: (a) Elimination of head movement. (b) Elimination of covert movement.
The book is of primary interest to researchers and students in theoretical linguistics and syntactic theory.
