Professor Howard Lasnik is one of the world's leading theoretical
linguists. He has produced influential and important work in areas
such as syntactic theory, logical form, and learnability. This
collection of essays draws together some of his best work from his
substantial contribution to linguistic theory.

During the past decade the minimalist approach has been highly
influential in syntactic theorizing. The articles collected in this
book represent empirical and technical explorations of syntactic
phenomena that have implications for this minimalist approach to
syntax. Taken together they display some of the changes and
developments in the minimalist program during the past decade.

This book is a considerable contribution to the development of the
approach in its exploration and refinement of theoretical concepts,
comparison of competing implementations and resurrection of much
older lines of analysis. Among the central topics considered are
verbal morphology, ellipsis, anaphora and the determination of
anaphoric connection and the blending of minimalist devices with
features of earlier generative accounts.
