This monograph addresses concerns, levels and adverbials. It proposes that there's a correlation among the part constitution, the tripartite quantificational constitution and the knowledge constitution of the sentence. This correlation performs a major function not just in referential and information-structural homes of arguments and the verb but additionally in adverbial houses. for example, the examine exhibits that sure sentence adverbials can happen within the sentence-final place within the vice president part once they signify the intense worth with admire to the set of concentration possible choices. The proposed correlation additionally turns into very important in anaphoric family with admire to adjuncts. basically an R-expression spelled out and interpreted within the CP section of an accessory clause can corefer with the coindexed pronoun. The examine additionally discusses adverbial ordering and exhibits that the relative order of sure adverbials could be reversed in the event that they happen in several stages. The monograph will attract syntacticians and linguists attracted to the connection among syntax and its interfaces.

Sample text

Icelandic object shift also displays interpretational effects in the case of movement across the negation operator. Consider example (35), taken from Bobaljik & Thráinsson (1998: 53). According to them, sentence (35a), where the shifted object 29. The control sentence (i) shows that the temporal adverbial can be adjoined above the direct object: (i) Pavel čte každý den alespoň jednu z navržených knih. acc from proposed books  Adverbials and the Phase Model crosses negation marking the left edge of VP and targets the specifier position of AgrOP, may only receive the following interpretation: It holds for three specific books that I did not read them.

Chomsky (2001: 2): 28. But see Chapter 6 for arguments that adverbials are merged cyclically. ] In addition, such a proposal can deal only with adverbials that occur in the same lexical subarray as the shifted object. Since the edge of a phase always stays present in the derivation after the complement of the phase head is transferred to the interfaces, it can happen that adverbials from the next higher lexical subarray (in the case of (29c) from the CP lexical subarray) are merged in the edge of the preceding phase, concretely, above the direct object in SpecvP in example (29c).

Given the correlation between the overtness of movement and the backgrounded interpretation, there must be a feature on elements in narrow syntax that can affect both interfaces. This is necessary because interfaces do not communicate with each other in the standard minimalist model. g. Chomsky (2000, 2004)). If an element with the μEPP-feature is moved to the CP phase, the phonological interface will know that the element (its copy) must be spelled out in the CP phase and the semantic interface will know that the element must be interpreted in the backgrounded domain and in the restrictive clause.
