Description

This chapter distinguishes structure-building features, which trigger Merge, and probe features, which trigger Agree. Empirical evidence in favor of local optimization is provided by cross-linguistic differences in case assignment to internal and external arguments, suggesting that many analyses that involve larger domains can be rephrased in terms of local optimalzation while acknowledging that there may be certain analyses that require larger optimization domains.
