Description - Minimalist Investigations in Linguistic Theory by Howard Lasnik

During the past decade the minimalist approach has been highly influential in syntactic theorizing. The articles collected in this book represent empirical and technical explorations of syntactic phenomena that have implications for this minimalist approach to syntax. Taken together they display some of the changes and developments in the minimalist program during the past decade. This book is a considerable contribution to the development of the approach in its exploration and refinement of theoretical concepts, comparison of competing implementations and resurrection of much older lines of analysis. Among the central topics considered are verbal morphology, ellipsis, anaphora and the determination of anaphoric connection and the blending of minimalist devices with features of earlier generative accounts.
