SYNTAX: One of the central notions in
GB theory referring to the assumption
that all syntactic relations, whether created by movement or by binding, should
be local, that is, should not exceed a certain length or distance.
ECP and the notions of
Minimality all serve the purpose of
enforcing locality on syntactic relations.
