"Minimalist Analysis highlights and sharpens the empirical focus of work on Chomsky’s Minimalist program. Lasnik’s investigations of a broad range of syntactic phenomena elucidate the central concepts and analyses of Minimalism and motivate some significant modifications. These clear and insightful case studies illuminate the complex interactions between theory and data. This is an outstanding collection and an important resource for linguistic theory." –Robert Freidin, Princeton University
