"Probe specific locality"
Amy Rose Deal, University of California, Berkeley

Abstract: Syntactic dependencies consistently show locality constraints, but these constraints have traditionally been taken to vary from one type of dependency to another (e.g. A' but not A movement can leave a finite clause) as well as from one language to another (e.g. out of finite clauses, some languages allow A movement, and some languages disallow A' movement). In this talk I will sketch a perspective on locality effects in syntax that attempts to find underlying unity in this domain while accounting for this diversity of behaviors. This is part of a larger project that seeks to make explicit a single operation of Agree that can account for all long-distance dependencies in syntax---the interaction/satisfaction theory. Special attention will be paid to the difference between "single" and "multiple" Agree, movement with mixed A/A' characteristics, and patterns of selective opacity beyond the A/A' distinction.
