Summary This book is the first dedicated to linguistic parsing - the processing of natural language according to the rules of a formal grammar - in the Minimalist Framework. Experts in the field show how the abstract theories of the Minimalist Program can be turned into working computer programs for processing sentences and analysing brain activity.
