Summary "Understanding Minimalism is a state-of-the-art introduction to the Minimalist Program - the current model of syntactic theory within generative linguistics. Accessibly written, it presents the basic principles and techniques of the Minimalist Program, looking first at analyses within Government-and-Binding Theory (the predecessor to minimalism), and gradually introducing minimalist alternatives."--BOOK JACKET.
