Qs: The Syntax & Semantics of Modified DPs
Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

The Syntax & Semantics of Modified DPs
Message 1: The Syntax & Semantics of Modified DPs
From: Carol Aguiar <carolina.unbgmail.com>
Subject: The Syntax & Semantics of Modified DPs
Dear all, I am working on topicalization of quantified DPs in Brazilian
Portuguese (BP) and I have already noticed that a topicalized DPs is okay
if it contains a modifier, as in (1) and (2):
(1) Every boy that I meet, you would like to meet (English)
(2) Todo menino bonito, a Maria quer namorar (BP)
all boy cute, the Maria wants date-Inf
“Every cute boy, Maria wants to data”
Thus, I would appreciate if you could tell if there is any research showing
other syntactic and semantic differences in behavior between DPs with and
without internal modification.
