Merging Features

This chapter examines wh-agreement in Kinande and establishes that is does not indicate movement has taken place. Therefore, wh-agreement cannot be taken as evidence for feature motivated intermediate checking of links in an A'-movement chain. It is established that the displaced wh-expression is related to the site where it is interpreted via multiple resumptive elements. This suggests that minimalism must consider the possibility of base-generating multiple resumptive copies, thereby posing the non-trivial question of how relevant links emerge.

Keywords:   successive cyclicity, resumption, islands, Kinande, minimalism
