This talk outlines the theory of Binding Preservation, which seeks to unite surprising restrictions on binding following A-movement with certain surprising possibilities for binding following scrambling. The theory provides a Minimalist, phase-based analysis of interactions among movement, binding, and Case. It is largely motivated by facts from Tagalog, a language that allows binding of an anaphor that has clearly A-moved, not A-bar scrambled, over its antecedent. In this talk, I will report on recent extensions of this work exploring interactions of binding and movement in Dutch double-object constructions.
