On eliminating d-structure: the case of binominal each
This paper provides a minimalist analysis of the binominal each phenomenon. The analysis incorporates key ideas behind Safir and Stowell's (1988) seminal paper but avoids the complications that this approach entails. Our proposal provides one more empirical argument for movement into θ-position, sideward movement, the primacy of movement over binding in matters of construal, and the virtues of a very derivational view of syntax. It is also consistent with a framework that dispenses with LF movement entirely.
