Reading group "Issues in Theoretical Syntax" a.y. 2021/22


The aims and activities of this reading group are mainly related to the issues of the theory of natural language, in particular to syntax. The main topic will be the notion of Symmetry, which constitutes a crucial notion in many natural domains and so does in the architecture of human language including syntax. It will be highlighted both the theoretical implications and the heuristic and explanatory force of this notion: the role of symmetry in the overall architecture of grammar (including, more specifically, movement, locality, labelling, and predication) and the relevant properties of different constructions will be analyzed in detail by adopting a formal perspective, in particular a Dynamic Antisymmetry framework.
