By David Lebeaux

This concise yet wide-ranging monograph examines the place the stipulations of binding conception practice and in doing so considers the character of word constitution (in specific how case and theta roles follow) and the character of the lexical/functional cut up. David Lebeaux starts off with a revised formula of binding conception. He reexamines Chomsky's conjecture that every one stipulations observe on the interfaces, specifically LF (or Logical Form), and argues as a substitute that every one adverse stipulations, particularly C, follow continually through the derivation. Lebeaux attracts a contrast among optimistic and unfavourable stipulations, that have various privileges of prevalence based on the structure of the grammar. damaging stipulations, he unearths, follow homogeneously through the derivation; confident stipulations practice exclusively at LF. A gap in C then forces a reconsideration of the total structure of the grammar. He unearths that case and theta representations are cut up aside and are just fused at later issues within the derivation, after stream has utilized. Lebeaux's exploration of the connection among case and theta concept finds a courting of better subtlety and significance than is usually assumed. His arguments should still curiosity syntacticians and people all for the principles of grammar.
