Illicit Remnant Movement: An Argument for Feature-Driven Movement
Article PDF (66.41 KB)

This article discusses previously unnoticed empirical effects of the operation Attract/Move F. Certain illicit cases of so-called remnant movement are accounted for if the primitive operation inducing movement is feature movement and all category movement is feature-driven, as is claimed by the Attract/Move F hypothesis. Since the relevant cases of illicit remnant movement remain unaccounted for under the traditional Move α hypothesis, which claims that the primitive operation is category movement, the present discussion lends new empirical support to the feature-driven view of movement.
