THE DERIVATION OF VO AND OV; Editorial page; Title page; LCC page; Table of Contents; Introduction; Word Order, Restructuring and Mirror Theory; OV is More Basic than VO; Remnant Movement and OV Order; V-movement and VP-movement in Derivations Leading to VO order; Deriving OV Order in Finnish; Parameter Change in Icelandic; The Right Periphery in SOV Languages: English and Dutch; Nominal Structure: An Extension of the Symmetry Principle; Quantifier Movement in Icelandic; Licensing Movement and Stranding in the West Germanic OV Languages; Two Types of VO Languages; Index.
Summary: The Derivation of VO and OV takes a new look at the relationship between head-final or OV structures and head-initial or VO ones, in light of recent work by Richard Kayne and others. The various papers in the volume take different positions with respect to whether one type of structure is derived from the other, and if so, which of the two orders is primary. Different options explored include derivation of VO order by head movement from a basic OV structure, derivation of VO by fronting of a phrasal VP remnant containing only the verb, derivation of OV by fronting of a remnant VP which the verb.
