    Edge Morphology
    Friday, March 24, 2017, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
    SAC 303
        I develop the thesis that basic components of thought, not limited to propositions, are derived from the optimally constructed generative procedure in conjunction with Third Factor Principles of efficient computation. I focus on the externalization of edge morphology.
        The Edge(X) of a phase includes both X (the Head) and the Specifier of X  [Spec [H [Compl]]]. The complement of a phase is spelled out before the edge (Chomsky 2001, et seq.), and economy conditions have been proposed for the externalization of the Edge.
