Abstract:

Over the last two decades, functional heads have been one of the privilegedobjects of research in generative linguistics. However, within this line of inquiry,two alternative approaches have developed: while the cartographic projectconsiders crosslinguistic evidence as crucial for a complete mapping offunctional heads in universal grammar, minimalist accounts tend to considerstructural economy as literally involving a reduction in the number of availableheads. In this volume, some of the most influential linguists who haveparticipated in this long-lasting debate offer their recent work in short, self-contained case studies. The contributions cover all the main layers of recentlystudied syntactic structure, including such major areas of empirical research asgrammaticalization and language change, standard and non-standard varieties,interface issues, and morphosyntax. Functional Heads attempts to map aspectsof syntactic structure according to the cartographic approach, and in doing sodemonstrates that the differences between cartography and minimalism areperhaps more superficial than substantial.
