Derived Coordination: A Minimalist Perspective on Clause by Philipp Weisser

By Philipp Weisser

This monograph explores the different sorts of clausal family members within the world’s languages. within the contemporary literature, there were claims that the stern dichotomy of subordination and coordination can't be maintained for the reason that a few structures appear to be in among those different types. This research investigates those buildings intimately.

The first half is worried with clause chaining buildings, whereas the second one is anxious with varied situations of uneven coordination in English. In either elements, it's proven that the several checks to differentiate clausal kinfolk certainly yield diverse effects for the explicit buildings. This poses a serious problem for the demonstrated theories of clausal relatives. even if, because it is argued, fresh analyses of coordination supply for the prospect to map a subordinate constitution onto a coordinate one through general transformational ideas. it really is proven unmarried stream step derives all of the ordinary houses of the phenomena in query.

This booklet hence presents the 1st accomplished resolution for a long-standing challenge in theoretical syntax.
