This chapter discusses some extensions and refinements of the specific implementation of sideward movement proposed in Nunes 1995, 2001, 2004. Assuming that Move is not a primitive operation, but simply a mnemonic label for one particular instantiation of applications of Copy and Merge, the chapter shows that the same conditions that restrict upward movement also constrain sideward movement. In particular, it is argued that within a core set of minimalist assumptions, sideward movement may not only be seen as cost free, but also paves the way for sound analyses of intricate empirical phenomena involving noncanonical realization of copies, adjunct control, and preposition contraction.

Keywords:   sideward movement, copy theory, phonetic realization of copies, adjunct control
