This paper describes how recent linguistic results in explaining Japanese short and long distance scram hling (:an be directly incorporated into an exist- ing principles-and-parameters-based parser with only triviM modifications. '.['he fact that this is realizable on a parser originally designed for a fixed-word-order language, together with the fact thai; Japanese scram- bling is complex, attests to the high degree of cross linguistic generalization present in the theory.
