Title: Towards an Elegant Syntax
Written By: Michal Brody
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists
Description:

This is a book of essays concerned with syntax, written between 1980 and 2001, in which the search for theoretical elegance takes centre stage. The conceptual difference between 'elegance' and the minimalist search for 'perfection' is examined and the consequences are shown to be wide ranging and radical, leading to a novel approach with a set of simplified potential primitives and axioms.
