The Sound Patterns of Syntax

Steven Franks

Oxford University Press

Minimalism reevaluates the division of labor between syntax and PF; much traditionally syntactic is actually a response to Spell–Out demands. This paper examines largely Slavic phenomena caused by Spell–out exigencies of (i) imposition of linear order on syntactically concatenated elements, (ii) determination of which copy to pronounce, and (iii) prosodification.

Keywords:   clitics, ellipsis, linearization, Slavic languages, Spell¬–Out
