abstract

In working toward an understanding of the syntactic component of the human language faculty, syntacticians necessarily ask question after question. One prominent question is: (1) What properties do all languages have in common? A related question is: (2) How exactly do languages vary in their syntax and what are the principled limits on that variation?
