Abstract and Keywords

The cartography of syntactic structures is a research topic asking the question: what are the right structural maps for natural language syntax? Even if cartography is not a framework per se, cartographic studies have often adopted certain methodological and heuristic guidelines, and also certain substantive hypotheses on the nature of syntactic structures, which form a coherent body of assumptions and a rather well-defined research direction; in the present chapter attempts to illustrate some ideas and the results of this direction.

Keywords: syntactic structures, functional architecture of clauses and phrases, cartographic approach, functional projection, local simplicity, movement
