Title: The Copy Theory of Movement
Edited By: Norbert Corver
Jairo Nunes
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 107
Description:

This volume brings together papers which address issues regarding the copy
theory of movement. According to this theory, a trace is a copy of the
moved element that is deleted in the phonological component but is
available for interpretation at L(ogical) F(orm). Thus far, the bulk of the
research on the copy theory has mainly focused on interpretation issues at
LF. The consequences of the copy theory for syntactic computation and for
the syntax-phonology mapping, in particular, have received much less
attention in the literature, despite its crucial relevance for the whole
architecture of the model. As a contribution to fill this gap, this volume
congregates recent work that deals with empirical and conceptual
consequences of the copy theory of movement for the inner working of
syntactic computations within the Minimalist Program, with special emphasis
on the syntax-phonology mapping.
