WALKDEN, George, 2009. Deriving the Final-over-Final Constraint from third factor considerations. In: Cambridge Occasional Papers in Linguistics (COPiL). 5, pp. 67-72

In this squib I examine two superficially competing explanations for the Final-over-Final Constraint (FOFC): those of Hawkins (2004) and of Biberauer, Holmberg & Roberts (2007, 2008). I argue that while an external, quantitative approach cannot account for all the relevant facts, such an approach, correctly formulated, may play a role in explaining the origin of a grammar-internal principle.
