Abstract:

This monograph presents a new model of the internal syntax of nominal
phrases. The model is mainly based on Scandinavian, since with the wide
range of variation that Scandinavian displays in the nominal domain,
despite the close genetic relationship between the different varieties,
Scandinavian is particularly well-suited for explorations into nominal
syntax. Among the topics covered are the basic syntactic structure of
nominal phrases, definiteness, adjective phrases, possessors, relative
clauses, and nominal predicates. The model is however meant to be a tool
for analysing the nominal phrases of any language. While the base-generated
structure is taken to be universally uniform, the model allows for
variation in the feature makeup of individual elements, in the phonological
realisation of the features, and in the movements that may or may not
apply. Hence, as shown in the final chapter, patterns found in languages
outside of Scandinavian can also be accounted for within the model.
