Grant Goodall Overview Work in syntax over the last 50 years has revealed a class of phenomena in which an element at the left periphery of the clause is related to a gap within the clause.
This relation is of interest because on the one hand, it is remarkably free there sometimes appears to be no principled limit on the possible distance between the two elementswhile on the other hand, it is subject to certain restrictions not all configurations for the two elements appear to be possible.
Much of this research has been discussed in terms of islands: In this course we will explore how best to analyze island phenomena, with an emphasis on the various approaches that you are likely to encounter in the literature. As time permits, we will also touch upon some non-island constraints, such as the that-trace effect, for additional perspective.
Goals The main goals of the course are to give you: Most of this class will be devoted to reading articles from the recent literature and discussing them, so it is essential that you do the reading, attend class, and participate in discussions.
You will lead the class discussion for one article during the quarter. You will also guide the discussion as we evaluate the paper, compare it to others that we have read, and discuss its implications for future research.
You will write a short research paper or research proposal that is related to the themes of this course. You will present a preview of your project to the class in Week Foundational Issues in Linguistic Theory: Essays in Honor of Jean-Roger Vergnaud Essays by leading theoretical linguists—including Noam Chomsky, B.
