This study explains why languages vary the way they do in the domain
of adjectival modification in French as contrasted with other
Indo-European languages.

The author rejects previous well known analyses in terms of syntactic
movement to various functional heads and proposes a model in which
external properties of interfaces are the foundations from which the
variation is derived.

Limiting severely the technical apparatus of syntax, the author argues
that the properties of Number at the interfaces are shown to provide a
simple and precise solution for longstanding problems of
compositionality raised by adjectival modification. There is also a
unified analysis of the many other properties involved. The model
provides a principled explanation of the variation concerning nominals
without determiners (Bare NPs) and determiners without nominals
(clitics).
