Rita Manzini -- Movement of arguments and negative feature / Masaaki Kamiya -- Inner aspect and phases / Jonathan E. MacDonald -- How to become passive / Berit Gehrke and Nino Grillo -- Ergativity, accusativity, and the order of merge and agree / Gereon M�uller -- Contributors -- Index.
Summary: This is the first volume dedicated to the study of formal features and the expression of arguments within Phase Theory, the latest model of syntactic theorizing within the Minimalist Program. The collection addresses the nature of formal features and their role in the syntactic computation as well as checking mechanisms and configurations. It also investigates theoretical issues underlying the nature of syntactic arguments and their licensing (argument structure at large) and specific grammatical operations involving arguments (abstract and morphological case, empty elements, passivization, ne.
