Abstract and Keywords

Simpler Syntax hypothesizes that the most explanatory theory of language is one that imputes the minimum syntactic structure necessary to mediate between phonology and meaning. This chapter shows that this hypothesis leads to desirable consequences for the analysis of such diverse syntactic phenomena as ellipsis, control, raising, and movement.

Keywords: syntax-semantics sinterface, ellipsis, control, raising, A΄ chains, argument alternations
