Labels in syntax (Advanced)
This class, which is meant as an advanced class presupposing some acquanitage with syntactic theorizing, reflects on the role of labels in recent syntactic theory.
- From X-bar theory to the labeling algorithms.
- The Unification of Move and Merge and its consequences
- The probing algorithm and relativization
- The problem of specifiers : no labels after all ?
- A reformulation of successive cyclic movement
