INTRODUCTION TO GOVERNMENT AND BINDING THEORY HAEGEMAN PDF

Introduction to government and binding theory Haegeman, L. Artikelomschrijving Since its first publication in Liliane Haegemana s Introduction to Government and Binding Theory has become established as the most authoritative introduction to the Principles and Parameters approach to syntactic theory. This new edition has been extensively updated throughout. Discussions of a number of topics missing from or not paid due attention in the first edition have been integrated or expanded, for example: the structure of small clauses in chaprer 2 , chain formation in chapter 6 , and reconstruction, multiple movement, wh--absorption, Full Interpretation, and expletive replacement in chapter 9. The copious exercises have been revised to increase potential for creativty and flexibility of approach. New exericases highlight further controversial issues.

Government[ edit ] The main application of the government relation concerns the assignment of case. Government is defined as follows: A governs B if and only if A is a governor and A m-commands B and no barrier intervenes between A and B.

This means that for example in a structure like the following, A m-commands B, but B does not m-command A: In addition, barrier is defined as follows: [9] A barrier is any node Z such that Z is a potential governor for B and Z c-commands B and Z does not c-command A The government relation makes case assignment unambiguous. The tree diagram below illustrates how DPs are governed and assigned case by their governing heads: Another important application of the government relation constrains the occurrence and identity of traces as the Empty Category Principle requires them to be properly governed.

Consider the sentence "Johni saw hisi mother", which is diagrammed below using simple phrase structure trees. Binding is used, along with particular binding principles, to explain the ungrammaticality of statements 1, 3, and 4. Principle A: an anaphor reflexive or reciprocal, such as "each other" must be bound in its governing category roughly, the clause.

Since "himself" is not c-commanded by "John" in sentence [3], Principle A is violated. Principle B: a pronoun must be free i. In sentence [1], "him" is bound by "John", violating Principle B. Principle C: an R-expression must be free i. R-expressions e. In sentence [4], the first instance of "John" binds the second, violating Principle C.

Note that Principles A and B refer to "governing categories"—domains which limit the scope of binding. The definition of a governing category laid out in Lectures on Government and Binding [1] is complex, but in most cases the governing category is essentially the minimal clause or complex NP.

Yet this book is the best and "the most authoritative introduction to the Principles and Parameters approach to syntactic theory". In chapter two the author presents certain assumptions upon which she builds up and develops or explains the construction and development of the theory.
