Description - Understanding Minimalist Syntax by Cedric Boeckx

Understanding Minimalist Syntax introduces the logic of the Minimalist Program by analyzing well-known descriptive generalizations about long-distance dependencies. * An introduction to the logic of the minimalist program - arguably the most important branch of syntax * Proposes a new theory of how long-distance dependencies are formed, with implications for theories of locality, and the minimalist program as a whole * Introduces the logic of the minimalist program by analyzing well-known descriptive generalizations about long-distance dependencies, and asks why they should be true of natural languages * Rich in empirical coverage, which will be welcomed by experts in the field, yet accessible enough for students looking for an introduction to the minimalist program.
