About this product
- DescriptionPhase Theory is the latest empirical and conceptual invation in syntactic theory within the Chomskyan generative tradition. Adopting a cross-linguistic perspective, this book provides an introduction to Phase Theory, tracing the development of phases in minimalist syntax. It reviews both empirical and theoretical arguments in favor of phases, and examines the role phases play at the interface with semantics and phology. Analyzing current phasehood diagstics, it applies them in a systematic fashion to a broad range of syntactic categories, both phases and n-phases. It concludes with a discussion of some of the more contentious issues in Phase Theory, involving cross-linguistic variation with respect to phasehood and the dynamic versus static nature of phases.
