Linguistic Field(s): Syntax

Meeting Description:

‘Movement' is posited as the solution for a wide variety of problems without much analysis of what such a solution really means. The topic of this one-day workshop is ‘criteria for movement’: given the general surge in the use of movement as an explanation for possibly quite different phenomena, is there some set of tests or other criteria that can be used to separate movement and non-movement structures and/or to develop a more adequate theory of movement types?
