This volume contains a series of papers written by internationally renowned linguists to celebrate Professor Mamoru Saito’s 60th birthday. The research reported in these papers has arisen from the International Collaborative Research Project on Comparative Syntax and Language Acquisition initiated by the Center for Linguistics at Nanzan University. Working within the minimalist framework, the authors highlight various issues Professor Saito has been addressing over the years, including movement phenomena such as scrambling, wh-movement and topicalization, and ellipsis phenomena such as N'-ellipsis and argument ellipsis, as well as the cartographic analysis of sentence peripheries, through the detailed analyses of a wide range of languages including Chinese, English, Italian, Korean, Japanese, and Dravidian languages. The volume is beneficial to researchers interested in not only current theoretical issues in the minimalist program but also various syntactic aspects of individual languages.
