Abstract

In this reply we examine Culicover and JackendoffÕs (2001) arguments against syntactic treatments of control, and against Hornstein 1999 in particular. We focus on three of their core arguments: (a) the syntactocentric view of control; (b) the control pattern found with promise; and (c) the violability of the Minimal Distance Principle. In all cases we contend that Culicover and JackendoffÕs claims fail to undermine HornsteinÕs proposal.
