The goal of this paper is to give a precise, formal account of certain fundamental notions in minimalist syntax. Particular attention is given to the comparison of token-based (multidominance) and chain-based perspectives on Merge. After considering a version of Transfer that violates the No-Tampering Condition (NTC), we sketch an alternative, NTC-compliant version.
