Word Structure Autonomy Condition
MORPHOLOGY: a condition proposed in Selkirk (1982) which says that no
deletion or movement transformation may involve categories of both W(ord)-structure and S(entence)-structure. This condition rules out a syntactic analysis of inflection, such as (a) the Affix Hopping analysis of English inflection (Chomsky 1957), (b) head movement analyses (Pollock 1989), and (c) incorporation analyses (Baker 1988).
