This volume explores in detail the empirical and conceptual content of the 'Minimal Link' condition (MLC) in the grammar, which constrains the length of movement dependencies in natural language. The authors investigate MLC effects in domains such as Stylistic Fronting, multiple wh-questions, double object constructions and transitives in ergative languages. Among the conceptual issues raised by the authors is the role of MLC at the interface between syntax proper and other grammatical modules (e.g. phonology), and the question whether MLC is a principle in its own right or its effects may be derived from other independent (possibly conspiring) rules of the grammar. The volume includes contributions couched in the Minimalist and Optimality Theoretical frameworks.
