Or assuming that scrambling is feature-driven, how the technical info of this research are carried out within the grammar to prevent unwarranted derivations, for instance, derivations with string-vacuous scrambling. one other very important query that's addressed is while scrambling is received within the improvement of the grammar, and what the results are for the timing of the purchase of A- and A'-movement properties.
