Linguistic LingField(s):  Linguistic Theories

Query:   About a year ago, I ended my paper ''Good Intentions and Actual Deeds: A
response to my critics'' (Lingua 116/4: 523-542) with the remark that the
model in Bouchard (2002) provides a level of explanation which is
unattainable for analyses set in the Minimalist Program or in alternative
theories of generative syntax—in particular concerning the distribution and
interpretation of adjectives inside nominal expressions.

I have kept my eyes open for studies dealing with adjectives, but I haven't
seen any work that meets the challenge. Of course, there is a staggering
amount of linguistic works published every year, and it may very well be
that some paper on the subject escaped my notice. Has anyone read an
analysis of adjectives that comes close to what I am looking for? I will
post a summary.
