Abstract and Keywords

Until recently, mainstream minimalist theorizing has treated construal as a interface process rather than as a part of core grammar. Recently, a number of authors have resisted this categorization and have tried to reduce binding and control relations to those established by movement, agreement, or some combination of the two. This article compares and contrasts two theories that give the grammar a privileged position with respect to the establishment of binding relations. It discusses variants of Hornstein's movement-based analysis of construal and Reuland's Agree-based theory of reflexive binding.

Keywords: minimalism, construal, grammar, binding relations, Hornstein, Reuland, Agree-based theory, reflexive binding
