Title: Head Movement in Bantu DPs
Author: Carstens, Vicki
Date: 2010-10
Abstract: 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).
