This chapter compares work done in Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar with
work done under the heading Minimalist Program. We discuss differences in the
respective approaches and the outlook of the theories. We have a look at the
procedural/constraint-based views on grammar and discuss the differences in
complexity of the structures that are assumed. We also address psycholinguistic issues like
processing and language acquisition.
