We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

this may perhaps seem a bit trivial, but as I've only had the opportunity
to learn a smattering of minimalist developments: is there any consensus on
how the following language areas (for English) are classified in terms of
+/-interpretability and perhaps also feature strength (if they can be
classified at all)? (Or, how are they viewed from the perspective of
2. relativization (relative proNs and Advs),
3. (word order and Tn choice in) 'reported speech',
4. obligatory non-referential 'there' and 'it',
5. 'as' and 'like',
6. conditional structures (esp. the remote or 'subjunctive' type).
I would be most grateful for assistance in settling this issue.
Thank you very much in advance,
