This chapter examines the predictions of the C1-LIN theory concerning linear intervention effects and certain kinds of domain effects before presenting some case studies related to the theory. In the C1-LIN theory, a cyclic head triggers Spell-Out of a phase in its complement and, along with its attendant material, undergoes Vocabulary Insertion in the domain of another cyclic head. Two cyclic heads cannot undergo Vocabulary Insertion in the same cycle, ruling out fusion of derivational morphemes of a particular type. While cyclic heads cannot see outer cyclic material, outer noncyclic material could trigger allomorphy for such nodes. The chapter also examines complex systems of affixation where the same type of functional head is found in both inner (Root-attached) and outer (outside of other cyclic head) domains. Finally, it discusses some of the ways in which the C1-LIN theory interacts with the phonological component of the grammar.

Keywords:   C1-LIN theory, linear intervention, cyclic heads, Vocabulary Insertion, allomorphy, affixation, grammar
