In this chapter we pose the non-trivial question regarding the status of functional features (f-features) in minimalist inquiry. This investigation explores whether or not f-features can be considered an essential part of narrow syntactic operations if they can be relegated to some sort of Late Insertion rule at PF. We advance the argument here that at least some f-features must be present in the narrow syntax to ensure derivational compliance.
