This book explores the central concept of "syntactic relation" arguing that certain fundamental relations such as c-command, dominance and checking relations can be explained within a derivational approach to structure-building. The result is a level-free model of syntax in which derivations, rather than phrase-markers, undergo aemantic/phonological interpretation.

A Derivational Approach to Syntactic Relations Reviews


This study develops a bold and intriguing hypothesis about the nature of language that reduces a wide range of empirical phenomena to a restrictive notion of pure derivation, with intriguing and highly suggestive results. It marks an important step forward in the recent efforts to show that conceptually natural principles of great generality carry us far in understanding the apparent complexity and diversity of human languages. * Noam Chomsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology *
