An argument that Merge is binary but its binarity refers to syntactic positions rather than objects.

In this book, Barbara Citko and Martina Gračanin-Yüksek examine the constraints on Merge--the basic structure-building operation in minimalist syntax--from a multidominant perspective. They maintain that Merge is binary, but argue that the binarity of Merge refers to syntactic positions Merge relates: what has typically been formulated as a constraint that prevents Merge from combining more than two syntactic objects is a constraint on Merge''s relating more than two syntactic positions.
Barbara Citko is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Washington. She is the author of Phase Theory: An Introduction and Symmetry in Syntax: Merge, Move and Labels. Martina Gračanin-Yüksek is Professor in the Department of Foreign Language Education at Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.
