On Certain (rather fundamental) Differences between Fukui and Kuroda [Invited]
Naoki Fukui

Merge and (A)symmetry
FUKUI NAOKI
Kyoto Conference on Biolinguistics   12 Mar 2012   The Biolinguistic Project (Japan)
This talk proposes a principle governing the application of Merge, according to which this operation is triggered to apply in order to achieve a 'featural' symmetry. Various consequences of this principle are also discussed in detail.
