This collection builds on the theory of Principles and Parameters and its Economy/Minimalist descendants. The essays progressively develop a view of syntactic structures in which syntactic properties are increasingly analyzed as atomized in progressively smaller elementary components and partitioned in the way these elementary components are represented. Dominique Sportiche argues that as a consequence of this view, languages do not differ at all in their syntactic organization.
