Head Movement in Bantu DPs
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Carstens argues against the approach of Cinque (2005) to deriving facts of adjunct order related to Greenberg's Universal 20, based on Shona data. Some implications are that head-movement exists in grammar and has syntactic consequences; it is part of narrow syntax. For modifiers at least, order and hierarchy are distinct, and uFs need not be deactivated and deleted from the syntactic object bound for the Conceptual-Intentional interface, where material that isn't semantic is ignored (Epstein, Kitahara, & Seely 2010).
