It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Layers of the Determiner Phrase
Written By: Roberto Zamparelli

The main topic of this work is the interaction between syntactic structure and meaning within the noun phrase, with data drawn primarily from English and Italian. The book proposes a strict mapping between semantic types and syntactic projections (or "layers") within the noun phrase, and assigns different positions to 'strong' determiners (in the sense of Milsark, 1974), and determiners which may appear in predicate nominals. The analysis is cast in Government and Binding theory, with notions from the minimalist program of Chomsky (1992, 1994), and from Montague grammar.
