(p.1) Chapter 1 Introduction
Where Does Binding Theory Apply?

Samuel Jay Keyser

The MIT Press

This introductory chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to argue against Chomsky’s (1995) contention that all conditions apply at the interface levels, and, in particular, at LF (Logical Form). It argues instead that Conditions B and C apply at all points in the derivation, over all intermediate structures. The discussion then turns to binding theory and the Single Tree Condition. It suggests that the Single Tree Condition is no different than the sort of constraint argued for and envisaged by Chomsky.

Keywords:   Logical Form, intermediate structures, Chomsky, binding theory, Single Tree Condition
