Title: Case and Agreement from Fringe to Core
Subtitle: A Minimalist Approach
Written By: Stefan Keine
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110234398-1
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 536
Description:

This book explores the view that impoverishment and Agree operations are
part of a single grammatical component. The architecture set forth here
gives rise to complex but highly systematic interactions between the two
operations. This interaction is shown to provide a unified and general
account of apparently diverse and unrelated instances of eccentric argument
encoding that so far have remained elusive to a unified theoretical
account. The proposed view of the grammatical architecture achieves an
integration of these phenomena within better-studied languages and thus
gives rise to a more general theory of case and agreement phenomena. The
empirical evidence on the basis of which the proposal is developed draws
from a wide range of typologically non-related languages, including Basque,
Hindi, Icelandic, Itelmen, Marathi, Nez Perce, Niuean, Punjabi, Sahaptin,
Selayarese, Yukaghir, and Yurok . The proposal has far-reaching
consequences for the study of grammatical architecture, linguistic
interfaces, derivational locality in apparently non-local dependencies and
the role of functional considerations in formal approaches to the human
language faculty.
