||Lee, Jeong-Shik. (2016). Universal Grammar in the Recent Minimalism and Its Suggestion for Korean. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 24(2), 127-147. Due to the change in the concept of Universal Grammar (UG) in the recent minimalist framework (Chomsky 2005), previous Principles and Parameters were excluded from UG. This paper thus addresses the issue of how the effects of the head-parameter in particular can be derived, the one that was responsible for word order difference, i.e., head-initial or head-final, in languages like English and those like Korean, respectively. For this, I argue for the universal Spec-head-complement hypothesis (Kayne 1994). It is claimed that Korean starts with the underlying head-initial structure and ends up displaying the typical head-final properties. This claim is corroborated by the technical and theoretical discussion made available from the perspective of current generative grammar.
