The Null Subject Parameter) must then be reduced to independently necessary, minimal, and constrained morpho-featural cross-linguistic variation in the lexicon (see Borer 1984; Fukui 1986). 2 THE 1990S: THE (RE-)EMERGENCE OF ECONOMY GUIDELINES Since Chomsky (1981), the main concern in the field had been to determine what kind of linguistic principles are genetically determined and how (some of) those principles of UG are parameterized. Some of the postulated UG principles follow the spirit of “least effort” or economy in that they “legislate against ‘superfluous elements’ in representations and derivations” (Chomsky 1991:418).

Chomsky 2000:92) The hypothesis is that FL optimally meets conditions imposed on it from outside. An infinite number of mechanisms could produce legible objects. The minimalist hypothesis, however, is that FL is “perfectly designed” to meet these conditions, and this obviously puts important design constraints on the form and function of the mechanisms of FL producing objects for the interfaces. And this, in turn, determines the nature of derivations. e. linguistic features. If the products of FL are to be usable to the external systems, these products must at least contain some interface-legible features; if there were no legible features at all, then they would be useless since they would be “unreadable” by the interfaces.

In addition to (8c), V(see) must adjoin to v* to restore the original VO order, thus head-movement must take place at the v*P phase level, but the nature Derivation(s) 28. 29. 30. 31. 21 of head-movement and its exact mechanism (especially its relation to NTC) remain to be spelled out. See Epstein and Seely (2002b) for discussion of problems regarding simultaneous rule application within a purportedly derivational theory. See also Grewendorf and Kremers (2009). Chomsky’s (2007, 2008) analysis thus strikes a delicate balance between the derivational and representational approaches.
