Nanosyntax: A short primer to a new approach to language
Nanosyntax is a new approach to the architecture of language, designed to make (better) sense of the new empirical picture emerging from recent years of syntactic research. It is a large-scale project, addressing a wide array of issues, ranging from big issues such as the modularity of language, to ﬁne details, such as the derivation of allomorphy in irregular patterns of given languages and its interaction with syntactic structures.
