Unstable structures and Generalized Dynamic Antisymmetry.
Andrea Moro, Ian Roberts
November 2020

This work aims to extend Dynamic Antisymmetry by relying on Labelling Algorithm. The central proposal is to generalise this approach to symmetric head-head structures, the inevitable first step of any derivation. The two symmetry-breaking “repair” options available give rise to basic head-initial and head-final word orders. One of the consequences of this approach is that all word-order parameters reduce to head-movement options. We take this to be a conceptual advance for the theory of word-order variation.
