%A Ivan Zakharyaschev %O The Russian spelling of the author's name is: ???? ?????????? %T Type logic served by co-Merge, Merge and Move: an account for sluicing and questions of `common European' and Japanese types %X We explore the power of type-logical grammar as a linguistic theory, specifically, of a new tentative development inside the framework?a ?symmetricized? Lambek Calculus, due to [Moortgat2005]. The basis for our discussion is an account we give for constructions involving questions and?in particular?involving sluicing; it seeks to solve puzzles these constructions have been setting for linguistic theory. Two things in the organization of grammar are of interest here: first, a uniform system joining structures from the surface side (syntactic) and structures from the ?mind side? (discourse)?we call MERGE and co-MERGE the relations by which the former and the latter structures are arranged; second, a view on the circumstances of performing MOVE (by Syntax) from the type-logical perspective. As it is usual for type-logical grammars, the theory is conscious of semantics. We refer to examples from Japanese, on one side, and from English and Russian, on the other. %K Non-associative Lambek calculus; Symmteric Non-associative Lambek calculus; type-logical grammar; questions; sluicing; sluicing-based NPs; movement; anaphora; WH-items; WH-words; WH-extraction; pied-piping; Japanese; English; Russian %E N.A.
