Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal provides an accessible, in-depth, and empirically oriented look at Chomsky's Minimalist Program. This volume facilitates understanding of the concepts of the Minimalist Program framework and presents a theory which eliminates construal processes from Universal Grammar. In its place, this book generalizes movement to promote a rather homogeneous-looking Universal Grammar, bereft of many of the modules characteristic of GB-inspired proposals for the structure of Universal Grammar.Move! articulates a far greater empirical range than any other single work in the Minimalist Program. It successfully explains the concepts of the framework, unifies many phenomena in new ways, and enables readers to understand several long-standing puzzles.

Industry Reviews

"The book you are about to read is radical. It has the immodest and ambitious goal of eliminating construal processes from Universal Grammar. Control, anaphora, and pronominalization are all treated as by-products of movement. This book delivers the goods." Joseph Aoun, University of Southern California
