Description - The Syntax of Imperatives in English and Germanic by Laura Rupp

This volume examines several aspects of the syntax of imperative clauses in English and in a variety of other Germanic languages in the context of the challenge that apparent optional movement poses for the Minimalist Programme. At a more general level, the book engages in current debate on one of the key issues in syntactic theory - the motivation for displacement operations in natural language. It should be of particular interest to students and researchers in English and Germanic and in general issues of syntactic theory.
