Truckenbrodt (1999) argues that only the lower segment of an adjunction
structure counts in syntax-prosody mapping.
da bai panzi 'a big white plate'), however, adverbs can be excluded, because after adjunction
to the head noun, the adjective is part of the compound [No A [No A No]] and accordingly is not accessible to modification by an adverb.
Under present assumptions, however, that is an "imperfection," and goes hand in hand with a syntax-semantics mismatch, namely, that, in spite of the differences between complementation and adjunction
and the asymmetric distribution of selection features, neither complements nor adjuncts project.
N] sequences fail the test of modification presented in Cormack (1998: 111), according to which adjunction
In terms of adjective iteration, however, the adjunction
structure seems more satisfactory.
Furthermore, what incorporates ("by free adjunction
, not by selection") is claimed to be se in lieu of le: how does (syntactic) free adjunction
have access to the output of a (presumably morphophonemic) "spurious se rule" which is itself triggered by the result of syntactic selection?
Likewise, differences in adjunction
and complementation cause native German speakers to use incorrect English verb forms, such as It has stopped to rain (Mack 1986).
That the focus feature percolates upward, as shown in (51), is clearly indicated by the distribution of FocP, which occurs in every position in which a focus can occur: (1) FocP is the adjunction
site for focus adjacent particles like only or even and occupies the syntactic focus position in focus-moving languages; (2) FocP occurs in the focus position of a cleft sentence (cf.
Up to now, minimalism has failed to show convincingly how the same AGR-position could be associated with different semantic interpretations, dependent on the lower or higher adjunction
of the adverb.
N + N [right arrow] N compounding: These types of compounds exist in three forms, N+N with antonymous formatives; N+N with synonymous formatives and adjunctions
These traces of milk could end up in vegetable products incorporated by starter adjunctions
and cause health problems for those who have a milk allergy.
The opening [gamma] and closing [phi] are defined by the adjunctions
