Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal By Norbert Hornstein
Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal
by Norbert Hornstein
Unifies various areas of inquiry under one theoretical approach. Incorporates greater empirical range than other work in this research paradigm. Provides successful explanation of the Minimalist Program. Guides readers through several long--standing puzzles in syntactic theory.
"The book you are about to read is radical. It has the immodest and ambitious goal of eliminating construal processes from Universal Grammar. Control, anaphora, and pronominalization are all treated as by--products of movement. This book delivers the goods." Joseph Aoun, University of Southern California
