Abstract and Keywords

This article is divided into two main parts. The first goes over some fairly general considerations about derivations before descending into some more specific discussion of some derivationalists. It then focuses on a series of appealingly intricate and internecine comments on c-command. The article argues that c-command and representationalism fit together very well. A concomitant point is that a purported major success of derivationalism in this domain is rather more problematic than is often supposed. If c-command is judged useful and desirable, then this finding is discommodious for the alleged supernumerary status of representations.

Keywords: derivations, representations, c-command, representationalism
