Introduction to government and binding theory / Liliane Haegeman – Details – Trove

The book takes as its starting point the projection principle, the notion that all syntactic structure is projected from the lexicon, with each chapter developing haegemzn the idea that syntax can be built on the basis of lexical information. The first four chapters discuss the distribution of overt material, chiefly noun phrases.

The following chapters introduce non-overt categories and the specific principles governing their distribution. While the discussion focuses on the syntax of English, the approach throughout is comparative, and the book concludes with chapters showing how GB theory can be applied to the study of Germanic and Romance languages.
