Pied-piping, the phenomenon that wh-movement may well objective different types no longer marked with the characteristic [wh], has usually been thought of idiosyncratic and pathological. On Pied-Piping argues that this evaluate isn't right. The ebook offers a compilation of crosslinguistic generalizations on pied-piping and a thought that derives them. Pied-piping is included right into a derivational idea of successive cyclic wh-movement that comes with input-output optimization, the operation Agree, and section conception. The ensuing thought is a step in the direction of remaining a long-standing hole in syntactic theorizing.
