In the Minimalist Program (Chomsky, 1992) it is assumed that there are different types of projections (lexical and functional) and therefore different types of heads. This paper explains why functional heads are not treated as head-corners by the minirealist head-corner parser described here.
This concise textbook has been primarily designed for undergraduate students
as a very ﬁrst course in programming. The book requires no prior knowledge of
programming nor algorithms. It provides a gentle introduction to these topics.
Analysing English Sentences provides a concise and clear introduction to current work in syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky’s Minimalist Program. Assuming little or no prior knowledge of syntax or Minimalism, Radford outlines the core concepts and leading ideas and how they can be used to describe various aspects of the syntax of English. A diverse range of topics is covered, including syntactic structure, null constituents, head movement, case and agreement, and split projections.
We provide a logical deﬁnition of Minimalist grammars, that are Stabler’s formalization of Chomsky’s minimalist program. Our logical deﬁnition leads to a neat relation to categorial grammar, (yielding a treatment of Montague semantics), a parsing-asdeduction in a resource sensitive logic, and a learning algorithm from structured data (based on a typing-algorithm and type-uniﬁcation). Here we emphasize the connection to Montague semantics which can be viewed as a formal computation of the logical form. ...
In Sayeed and Szpakowicz (2004), we proposed a parser inspired by some aspects of the Minimalist Program. This incremental parser was designed speciﬁcally to handle discontinuous constituency phenomena for NPs in Latin. We take a look at the application of this parser to a speciﬁc kind of apparent island violation in Latin involving the extraction of constituents, including subjects, from tensed embedded clauses. We make use of ideas about the left periphery from Rizzi (1997) to modify our parser in order to handle apparently violated subject islands and similar phenomena. ...
Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML: Theory and Practice shows how to drive an object-oriented software design from use case all the way through coding and testing, based on the minimalist, UML-based ICONIX process. In addition to a comprehensive explanation of the foundations of the approach, the book makes extensive use of examples and provides exercises at the back of each chapter.
