Petra Sleeman Quantifier preposing in French and Italian as a root phenomenon: a syntactic or a pragmatic approach?
Abstract: On the basis of a corpus research it is shown that quantifier preposing in French and Italian, arguably a focalization mechanism, is a root phenomenon, occurring only in root-clauses and in root-like clauses. Scarpe Nike Store Canotta New Orleans Pelicans nike air max 2017 dames fjällräven kånken Mini It is furthermore shown that other types of focalization in the left periphery in French and Italian are not root phenomena, in accordance with Emonds’ claim for English clefting. sac à dos kanken fjallraven pas cher Scarpe Adidas Y-3 The question is why there should be such a difference. adidas stan smith 2 noir blanc Adidas ZX 10000 Heren Nike Air Max 2016 Dames Blauw nike femme Three recent approaches to root phenomena are discussed, a syntactic one, a pragmatic-semantic one, and a mixed one.

A mixed analysis of the focalization data is proposed.

Mihaela Adriana Marchis “Move vs.
Abstract: This paper continues the long-standing discussion whether clitics in clitic doubling constructions should be regarded as being similar to affixes expressing subject-verb agreement or rather as reflexes of movement.
Scarpe Nike Online Shop Outlet A crosslinguistic comparison of clitics will show that although clitics come in different flavors either as phi-features or as determiners, they are all the result of an overt feature movement to repair violations of the Minimal Link Constraint (Anagnostopoulou 2005). cheap adidas uk
Air Max Pas Cher Long Distance Agree constructions in Greek, Romanian and Spanish use clitic doubling as a strategy to avoid minimality effects. Nike Air Max 2015 męskie nike mercurial futsal pas cher Air Max Goedkoop On the basis of a parallel between clitic doubling and Long Distance Agree, I conclude that they are the outcome of two different operations Move vs. asics gel lyte 3 hombre blancas nike air max chaussure pas cher Agree but both are sensitive to Minimal Link Constraint and are regulated by a phase-based locality condition (the Phase Impenetrability Condition).

Ion Giurgea The “PRO-N” clitic en/ne and the theory of cliticization
Abstract: The Romance pro-N clitic (Fr., Cat.) en / (It.) ne is problematic for most theories of cliticization, because some phenomena support a movement analysis, while others seem to speak against movement. Chaussures Asics Pas Cher Canotte Detroit Pistons Endorsing the view that the pro-N clitic is the result of movement, this paper argues that the problems of this analysis can be solved by assuming that this clitic does not represent an N or NP, but rather a functional head intermediate between D/Q and N (probably Num), whose complement is empty after the DP-phase is completed.
Consequently, I propose that the theory of cliticization should be modified in order to allow “dynamic minimality”: only minimal elements may cliticize, but non-minimal elements may become minimal in the course of the derivation, if their complement has a null spell-out.

Mihaela Tănase-Dogaru Romanian double-definites: double-DP qualitatives
Abstract: The paper proposes that there are two types of binominal qualitative constructions in Romanian: single-DP qualitatives and double-DP qualitatives (henceforth SDPQs and DDPQs). Ernie Banks Jersey The constructions falling in the first category will be analyzed as single projections while the second type of qualitatives will be shown to display the behavior of dual projections (van Riemsdijk 1998). As single projections, SDPQs consist of a DP-embedded split NP; on the other hand, DDPQs consist of two full DPs.

Abstract: This paper examines in detail the thematic and syntactic properties of a set of (non-)restructuring structures in Germanic, Romance and Basque. adidas zx 850 mujer asics buty sklep online polska Penn State Nittany Lions
Nike Air Max 2016 Dames blauw nike air max 90 homme pas cher Based on the comparison of these structures, I propose a fine-grained classification of (non-)restructuring constructions that include Functional Restructuring, Semi-Lexical Restructuring, Lexical Restructuring and Non-Restructuring constructions.
Maglie Houston Rockets Nike Air Max 2017 schoenen The four types involve complements of different underlying structures (VPs, vPs or even as large as NegP/TPs). new balance 373 bleu orange nike air max 1 premium mujer fjallraven occasion The results of the analysis argue against Cinque’s (2005) hypothesis that all restructuring verbs are exclusively functional, and contradicts Wurmbrand’s (1999) claim that, within the mixed class of restructuring verbs, modals must be raising verbs.

Ioana Stoicescu Temporal deixis in early child Romanian
Abstract: This paper investigates the contrastive use of tense-aspect inflections in early child Romanian.
It focuses on the use of the prezent, perfect compus and the periphrastic future morphologies. Air Jordan 7 Maglie Atlanta Hawks fjallraven kanken cheap It finds evidence of the ability to inflect a significant number of the verbs in all the tenses mentioned below the age of 3;0.
Chaussures Asics Femme Additionally, by analysing the context of occurrence of these child predicates, it shows that a basic system of temporal deixis becomes operative before the above-mentioned age. nike tn requin Consequently, the evidence presented by the paper runs against the claims of the Aspect First Hypothesis.
