The Minimalist Program advances explanatory adequacy to the extent that stipulative principles and filters of GB are deduced from the smallest number of simple, ‘natural’ axioms. Fundamental among these are: (i) Sound and meaning are ineliminable: there are lexical features and properties. (ii) There is a (recursive) structure building operation: Merge (A & B) produces C. (iii) The language faculty interacts with external systems: to be usable, the objects of the syntactic component must be legible to the interfaces.
