This chapter explores two different approaches to derive locality effects on movement. The chapter is organized as follows. Section 3.2 explores a positional account of intervention effects in which SpecFinP plays a central role. Section 3.3 presents the alternative feature-based approach. Section 3.4 shows how the feature-based approach can account for the restrictions on argument topicalization in English. Section 3.5 discusses remaining problems for the account. Section 3.6 briefly extends the feature-based account to locative inversion, inversion around be, and VPpreposing. Section 3.7 is a summary of the chapter.

Keywords:   locality effects, movement, SpecFinP, English argument topicalization
