By Anna Maria Di Sciullo

This quantity brings to fore the centrality of asymmetry in DP, vice president and CP. A finer grained articulation of the DP is proposed, and additional sensible projections for restrictive family members, in addition to a polished analyses of case id and presumptive pronouns. The papers on vice president talk about extra asymmetries between arguments, and among arguments and adjuncts. Double-object buildings, specificational copula sentences, secondary predicates, and the scope houses of adjuncts are mentioned during this standpoint. The papers on CP suggest one other articulation of the phrasal projection, justifications for Remnant IP stream, and an research of edition in clause constitution asymmetries. The papers in semantics aid the speculation that interpretation is a functionality of configurational asymmetry. The type/token details distinction is extra argued to correspond to the partition among the higher and reduce point of the word. it's also proposed that time of View Roles should not primitives of the pragmatic part, yet are head-dependent different types. Configurationality is extra argued to be required to tell apart contrastive from non-contrastive subject. Compositionality is proposed to give an explanation for cross-linguistic adaptations within the selectional behaviour of typologically varied languages.

A ball which is red c. the man who entered Additional evidence for the extensional interpretation of RRCs comes from the observation that even when the RRC contains an Adjective that is potentially ambiguous between an extensional and an intensional reading, the result of embedding that Adjective within a RRC always results in an unambiguously extensional reading for that Adjective. For illustration, consider the Adjective ‘beautiful’ in example (17) below, discussed by Larson (1998), among others.
