Traditionally, three movement types have been recognized: A, A-bar, and head movement. Recent developments challenge this picture, however. In this paper I examine cases of roll-up movement, and suggest that some of the properties of this movement type can be understood in terms of cluster formation. I suggest that this partly clears up the relationship between morphology and syntax, and that some remnant movement might be understood in these terms as well.
