Syntax with oscillators and energy levels

March 2018
 

Is it possible to study syntax without the concept of a "syntactic object"? Syntax with oscillators and energy levels is an attempt to develop an alternative framework for conceptualizing syntactic patterns. Instead of analyzing syntactic phenomena with structures of connected objects, the oscillators/energy levels framework constructs analyses using systems, states, state spaces, trajectories, and forces.
