Abstract and Keywords

This article clarifies the concept of cycle, or phase, in minimalist parlance. Cyclicity is a derivational condition if there is one, a strong constraint if derivational timing is so relevant that chunks of structure abandoning the derivation become opaque to further computation. The challenge continues to be to understand the exact nature of this condition, which may be rather more widespread than it might at first seem.

Keywords: cycle, grammar, minimalism
