This chapter provides a summary of the major results presented in the book, as well as an overview of their significance, particularly in light of past and future research agendas. A summary is presented of the syntactic, semantic, and phonological properties of the main building blocks proposed in this book: roots, C-functors, S-functors, and Extended Projections. In view of the conclusions reached regarding the role of phonological indices and phonological realization in the syntactic derivation, this chapter urges a re-evaluation of the role of some aspects of phonology in the syntactic derivation. It specifically questions the claim that is sometimes put forward that phonology as a whole cannot be part of narrow syntax.
