A program for the Minimalist Program
The paper reviews current understandings of the Minimalist enterprise and defends one version thereof. Our main departure from the norm involves substituting ‘cognitive generality’ (viz. non-linguistic-parochialism) for ‘computational efficiency’ as a minimalist regulative ideal. We argue that the former is important to realize minimalist ambitions. The latter, though welcome, is less vital.
