Deducing the Generalized XP Constraint from Phasal Spell-out



Abstract I show extraction is banned from a phase that is immediately c-commanded by a phasal head, unifying this way a generalized version of the Complex NP Constraint that extends beyond NP and CED. An account of the ban is proposed where phase XP is completely inaccessible to higher phasal heads, with no edge exception. Under the account, what is sent to spell-out is phases but successive-cyclic movement does not proceed via phases. The PIC is eliminated.
