Abstract: The present contribution pretends to build on the line of Krivochen & Luder (2012) in the development of formal tools for the study of classical languages, particularly Latin. Such tools, stemming from axiomatic-formal systems, are put to test with concrete data, and help us achieve a better understanding not only of language taken as a system, but also the biological-cognitive substratum that underlies such system. Our focus in this paper will be set on the notion of 'locality' in syntactic derivations, which has been the object of most Chomskyan-related studies during the last decade. Departing from concrete problems that appear in attested data, we will attempt an explanation of locality alternative to Chomskyan orthodoxy. The main aim is to provide the reader with fully explicit theoretical tools that they can use more generally in the analysis of locality phenomena in Latin.
