Rhyme and reason : an introduction to minimalist syntax by Juan Uriagereka( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unusual book takes the form of a dialogue between a linguist and another scientist. The dialogue takes place over six days, with each day devoted to a particular topic - and the ensuing digressions. The role of the linguist is to present the fundamentals of the minimalist program of contemporary generative grammar. Although the linguist is a voice for Noam Chomsky's ideas, he is not intended to be a portrait of Chomsky himself. The other scientist functions as a kind of devil's advocate, making the arguments that linguists tend to face from those in the "harder" sciences. In addition to the device of the dialogue, the author employs a myriad of graphics - everything from classical paintings to contemporary cartoons
Of minds and language : a dialogue with Noam Chomsky in the Basque country by Pello Salaburu Etxeberria( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Publisher-supplied data] This book presents a state-of-the-art account of what we know and would like to know about language, mind, and brain. Chapters by leading researchers in linguistics, psycholinguistics, language acquisition, cognitive neuroscience, comparative cognitive psychology, and evolutionary biology are framed by an introduction and conclusion by Noam Chomsky, who places the biolinguistic enterprise in an historical context and helps define its agenda for the future. The questions explored include: What is our tacit knowledge of language? What is the faculty of language? How does it develop in the individual? How is that knowledge put to use? How is it implemented in the brain? How did that knowledge emerge in the species? The book includes the contributor's key discussions, which dramatically bring to life their enthusiasm for the enterprise and skill in communicating across disciplines. Everyone seriously interested in how language works and why it works the way it does are certain to find, if not all the answers, then a convincing, productive, and lively approach to the endeavour
Step by step : essays on minimalist syntax in honor of Howard Lasnik by Howard Lasnik( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays presents an up-to-date overview of research in the minimalist program of linguistic theory. The book includes a new essay by Noam Chomsky as well as original contributions from other renowned linguists."--Jacket
A course in minimalist syntax : foundations and prospects by Howard Lasnik( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Polish and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Course in Minimalist Syntax is a straightforward and detailed introduction to essential topics in the Minimalist Program, designed for students and scholars alike. Building on the authors' previous works on minimalist syntax, this volume maintains an informal tone yet contains sufficient fresh material to appeal at the highest level."--Jacket
Syntactic anchors : on semantic structuring by Juan Uriagereka( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the major arenas for debate within generative grammar is the nature of paradigmatic relations among words. Intervening in key debates at the interface between syntax and semantics, this book examines the relation between structure and meaning, and analyzes how it affects the internal properties of words and corresponding syntactic manifestations. Adapting notions from the Evo-Devo project in biology (the idea of 'co-linearity' between structural units and behavioural manifestations) Juan Uriagereka addresses a major puzzle: how words can be both decomposable so as to be acquired by children, and atomic, so that they do not manifest themselves as modular to adults
Derivations : exploring the dynamics of syntax by Juan Uriagereka( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dynamic Syntax" draws together some of the most influential work of one of the world's leading syntactitians, Juan Uriagekera. These essays provide several empirical analyses and technical solutions within the minimalist programme. The book pursues a naturalistic take on minimalism, explicitly connecting a variety of linguistic principles and conditions to arguably analogous laws and circumstances in nature.; Juan Uriagereka presents an analysis of a variety of central linguistic notions, such as case agreement, obviation and rigidity, from a derivational perspective. Including concrete studies, he uses data from a number of languages
Spell-out and the minimalist program by Juan Uriagereka( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since Juan Uriagereka originated the multiple spell-out model in 1999 it has been one of the most influential lines of research in syntactic theorizing. The model simplified a crucial element of the minimalist account of language making it a more accurate reflection of syntax and its acquisition. This book explores important consequences of the multiple spell-out hypothesis and of the linked notion of cyclicity. It combines the latest thinking in linguistics with perspectives drawn from physics, biology, and animal behaviour, aiming thereby to advance the field first described by Noam Chomsky as biolinguistics. Without simplifying, this book seeks to present the issues and their broader biological significance. The subjects discussed include the linearization of structure, the punctuated nature of a derivation (the multiple spell-out model), cyclicity and its consequences for locality, and the definition of c-command and its relevance to various types of grammatical dependency. The book discusses the evolutionary implications of Uriagereka's work, considering, for example, whether the punctuated nature of the derivation is a resolution of conflicting demands that yield an equilibrium found in nature more generally."--

Syntactic structures revisited : contemporary lectures on classic transformational theory by Howard Lasnik( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book provides an introduction to some classic ideas and analyses of transformational generative grammar, viewed both on their own terms and from a more modern, or minimalist perspective. The major focus is on the set of analyses treating English verbal morphology. The book shows how the analyses in Chomsky's classic "Syntactic Structures" actually work, filling in underlying assumptions and often unstated formal particulars. From there the book moves to successive theoretical developments and revisions -both in general and in particular as they pertain to inflectional verbal morphology. After comparing Chomsky's economy-based account with his later minimalist aproach, the book concludes with a hybrid theory of English verbal morphology that includes elements of both "Syntactic Structures" and "A Minimalist Programme for Linguistic Theory"
Barriers on Basque Wh-Movement by Itziar Laka( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The theoretical generalization that no lexical material can occur between a Wh-element and a verb in any clause in Basque is challenged, and it is argued that case is not assigned structurally in the Basque language. The account demonstrates how a number of well documented properties of Basque may combine to produce this grammatical result, and an attempt to capture the significance of several specific syntactic relationships (E.G., theta-role discharging, case assignment, and focalization) for the proper definition of barriers is presented.
