Title: Derivations and Evaluations
Subtitle: Object Shift in the Germanic Languages
Written By: Hans Broekhuis
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110198645-1
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar [SGG] 97
Description:

This study shows that Scandinavian object shift and so-called A-scrambling
in the continental Germanic languages are the same, and aims at providing
an account of the variation that we find with respect to this phenomenon by
combining certain aspects of the Minimalist Program and Optimality Theory.
More specifically, it is claimed that representations created by a
simplified version of the computational system of human language CHL are
evaluated in an optimality theoretic fashion by taking recourse to a very
small set of output constraints.
