Zero syntax : experiencers and cascades by David Michael Pesetsky( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The analysis and theory developed in Zero Syntax are important contributions to the understanding of Universal Grammar. The overriding theme of the book is the notion that the availability and syntactic positioning of arguments is not a matter of chance but arises from laws governing the structure of lexical entries and from laws governing syntactic structures themselves. Along the way, Zero Syntax also examines issues of broad significance to current theoretical linguistic research in syntax and lexical semantics
Phrasal movement and its kin by David Michael Pesetsky( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates the types of movement and movement-like relations that link positions in syntactic structure. David Pesetsky argues that there are three such relations. Besides overt phasal movement, there are two distinct types of movement without phonological effect: covert phrasal movement and feature movement. Focusing on wh-questions, he shows how his classification of movement-like relations allows us to understand the story behind wh-questions in which an otherwise inviolable property of movement--"Attract Closest"--Appears to be violated. By demonstrating that more movement takes place in such configurations than previously suspected, he shows that Attract Closest is actually not violated at all in these cases. This conclusion draws on recent research in both syntax and semantics, and depends crucially on Pesetsky's expanded repertoire of movement-like relations. Linguistic Inquiry Monograph No. 37
