Minimalism vs. organic syntax
In this paper, we discuss Minimalism versus Organic Grammar, and define Organic Grammar for syntax (Organic Syntax) as an alternative to theMinimalist Program. We argue that language learners gradually acquire a Master Tree for a particular language that ends up including all possible functional projections for that language. Further, we provide a reanalysis of recent data from child vs. adult L2 acquisition of root infinitives using our own theory.
