This chapter continues the discussion of domain minimization by examining the impact of reduced formal marking on relative positioning. Section 6.1 first presents some data from performance, principally from corpus studies of alternating structures in English. Section 6.2 then presents corresponding cross-linguistic data from grammars that test the Performance–Grammar Correspondence Hypothesis. Section 6.3 considers classical morphological typology from the processing perspective of this chapter.

Keywords:   domain minimization, relative positioning, English language, grammars, Performance–Grammar Correspondence Hypothesis, cross-linguistic data
