Abstract:

Over the last two decades, functional heads have been one of the privileged
objects of research in generative linguistics. However, within this line of inquiry,
two alternative approaches have developed: while the cartographic project
considers crosslinguistic evidence as crucial for a complete mapping of
functional heads in universal grammar, minimalist accounts tend to consider
structural economy as literally involving a reduction in the number of available
heads. In this volume, some of the most influential linguists who have
participated in this long-lasting debate offer their recent work in short, self-
contained case studies. The contributions cover all the main layers of recently
studied syntactic structure, including such major areas of empirical research as
grammaticalization and language change, standard and non-standard varieties,
interface issues, and morphosyntax. Functional Heads attempts to map aspects
of syntactic structure according to the cartographic approach, and in doing so
demonstrates that the differences between cartography and minimalism are
perhaps more superficial than substantial.
