MERGE, Minimal Yield, and Workspace accessibility

This paper considers Minimal Yield, which is a condition on MERGE, and removes the redundancy between Minimal Search and the Phase Impenetrability Condition in warranting the condition when internal MERGE applies. By proposing that Transfer applies freely, the paper claims that Minimal Yield is guaranteed without reference to Minimal Search, providing empirical evidence for the proposed approach and demonstrating its superiority over Minimal Search. As a consequence of the proposal, A-movement is reconsidered. I claim that A-movement is not due to internal MERGE but to external MERGE, arguing for uniform association of phase-internal/cross-phasal relations with external/internal MERGE. This paper concludes that genuine explanation is possible for language.
