Deriving Coordinate (A)symmetries out of the Survive Principle

Koo, Ja-Hyeok

(Gangneung-Wonju National University)

The coexistence of the symmetries and asymmetries of coordinate structures has long been a challenge in the tradition of generative grammar. In most coordinate constructions, it is argued, symmetric coordination is maintained through feature mapping algorithms across all syntactic levels, which are first proposed in Velde (2005). In particular, the apparent asymmetric phenomenon like CSC is in fact the result of both symmetric feature mapping at lexical selection and Remerge in narrow syntax. In the approach to coordinate structures proposed here, which is based on the assumptions and principles of the Survive-minimalism (cf. Putnam and Stroik (2008) and Stroik and Putnam (2013)), the second conjunct, to which a coordinating conjunction has already adjoined due to its defectiveness instead of projecting its phrase, is right-adjoined to the last member of the first conjunct. The resulting structure implies that any elements in the first conjunct c-command those in the second conjunct, accounting for coordinate asymmetries structurally. Moreover, in a derivational way, we can account for the surprising Principle A symmetry in coordinate constructions, following Lebeaux’s (2009) suggestion about the domain of binding principles and Velde’s (2009) list-adjunction.
