Minimalist investigations in linguistic theory/Howard Lasnik. Includes bibliographical references and index. Minimalist theory (Linguistics) 2. Grammar, Comparative and general – Syntax. In linguistics, the minimalist program (MP) is a major line of inquiry that has been developing inside generative grammar since the early s, starting with a paper by Noam Chomsky.

Chomsky presents MP as a program, not as a theory, following Imre Lakatos's distinction. The MP seeks to be a mode of inquiry characterized by the flexibility of the multiple directions that its minimalism.

Minimalist Investigations in Linguistic Theory (Routledge Leading Linguists: No.8) View larger image. By: Howard LasnikAuthor: Howard Lasnik. Linguistic minimalism refers to a family of approaches exploring a conjecture, first formulated by Noam Chomsky in the early s, concerning the nature of the human language faculty.

This chapter first states what the conjecture amounts to, what sort of research programme emerges from it, and how it could be carried out. Second, it emphasizes that the minimalist program for linguistic theory. Get this from a library. Minimalist investigations in linguistic theory.

This Handbook provides a complete assessment of the current achievements and challenges of the Minimalist Program. Established 15 years ago by Noam Chomsky with the aim of making all statements about language as simple and general as possible, linguistic minimalism is now at the centre of efforts to understand how the human language faculty operates in the mind and manifests itself in languages.

The Minimalist Program, by Noam Chomsky, is a collection of four articles, ‘The Theory of Principles and Parameters’ (written with Howard Lasnik, 13–), ‘Some notes on Economy of Derivation and representation’ (–), ‘A Minimalist Program for linguistic theory’ (–), and ‘Categories and transformations’ (–).

This book is directed to syntacticians working within the current frameworks that have developed from the Minimalist Program and Optimality Theory, but it will also be of interest to researchers or advanced students of linguistic theory.

Juan Uriagereka is Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Maryland, and is author of A Course in GB Syntax (with Howard Lasnik, ) and Rhyme and Reason: An Introduction. These seven original essays commissioned in tribute to MIT Philosophy Professor Sylvain Bromberger present some of the most exciting research being conducted today in linguistics.

Each essay is informed by Bromberger's ongoing inquiry into how we "come to know that there are things in the world that we don't know." Included in the collection is the edited version of Noam Chomsky's minimalist.

The Minimalist Program in linguistics, championed by Chomsky in the mids, is an attempt to seek beauty in the theory of linguistics.

Boeckx examines the foundations and explains the underlying philosophy of the Minimalist Program for linguistic theory, the most radical version to date of Noam Chomsky's naturalistic approach to language. He exemplifies its methods, considers the significance of its. This book develops a minimalist approach to cross-linguistic morphosyntactic variation.

Ian Roberts argues that the essential insight of the principles-and-parameters approach to variation can be maintained - albeit in a somewhat different guise - in the context of the minimalist programme for linguistic theory.

Overall, this book forces the reader to rethink syntax from the ground up and provides a valuable overview and interesting empirical coverage of a rich area of research, as language variation is. Linguistic variation is one of the main controversial topics in linguistics and this volume proves so.

Here, Chomsky reviews some foundational aspects of the theory of structure building: essentially, Merge and Label. The aim is to eliminate what he refers to as extensions of Merge which are seemingly incompatible with the Strong Minimalist Thesis while still accounting for recursive structure, displacement, and reconstruction (as the main.

A comprehensive theory of selective opacity effects—configurations in which syntactic domains are opaque to some processes but transparent to others—within a Minimalist framework.

In this book, Stefan Keine investigates in detail “selective opacity”— configurations in which syntactic domains are opaque to some processes but transparent to others—and develops a comprehensive theory. If this is correct, then much of what we consider distinctive to language must in fact involve operations available in pre-linguistic cognitive domains.
