Endocentric Structuring of Projection-free Syntax puts forward a novel theory of syntax that rigidly adheres to the principle of Minimal Computation, in which a number of traditional but extraneous stipulations such as referential indices and representational labels/projections are eliminated. It specifically articulates the overarching hypothesis that every syntactic object is composed by recursive, phase-by-phase embedding of the endocentric structure {H, α}, where H is a head lexical item and α is another syntactic object (order irrelevant). The proposed mechanism achieves both theory-internal simplicity and broad empirical coverage at the same time, advancing a radically reduced conception of endocentricty/headedness while deriving a number of empirically grounded constraints on human language.

“This fascinating inquiry covers a wide range of problems, many of which have received intensive study, others that open new directions. It proceeds with careful and perceptive analysis and provides original and challenging solutions and new ideas. It is a very welcome contribution that is sure to be deservedly influential.”
“Narita makes a bold proposal to derive the endocentric properties of natural language sentence structure from a theory that is truly exemplary of the spirit of minimalism. A must-read for anyone wishing to keep abreast of the latest developments in the art of doing theoretical syntax.”
“Hiroki Narita is one of the most promising theoretical syntacticians in younger generations, and Endocentric Structuring of Projection-free Syntax eloquently tells us why he should be so described. Along the lines of Chomsky’s most recent ideas of divorcing projection/labeling from the principles of construction of linguistic expressions, the book investigates in detail various essential properties of structure-building in human language, and makes a number of stimulating proposals within the projection-free system of syntax in conjunction with the law of minimal computation. Quite an impressive piece of work.”
Endocentric Structuring of Projection-free Syntax is an example of theoretical syntax at its best. Narita pushes the limits of our understanding of labeling and merge, shedding light on core aspects of the human language faculty. This book demonstrates the power of minimalist considerations.”
