Abstract:

Examining its subject from a generative perspective, this highly detailed
text deals with the syntax of nominal expressions. It focuses on empirical
data taken from the Spanish language, though the author goes further to
draw conclusions of wider theoretical interest from material culled from
other languages too.

The book considers crucial phenomena in the nominal domain, such as
extraction out of nominal phrases and ellipsis in these phrases, as well as
their modification. In doing so it provides the reader with a unified
explanation of a number of phenomena that have not previously been analyzed
under a single basic account. In particular, Ticio explores how economy
notions interact with a number of functional categories, with the length
and type of movements allowed, and with the existence of three internal
domains within nominal expressions. She uses these observations to inform
her analysis of the structure of arguments and adjuncts in nominal
expressions, and of the potential these elements have for extraction. To
test the empirical adequacy of her analysis, she employs phenomena such as
the properties of attributive adjectives, partial cliticization and nominal
elision in Spanish nominal phrases.

Aimed at specialized linguists as well as those with a particular interest
in Spanish and Romance languages, the research laid out in this book
contributes to the general discussion on linguistic theory by providing
additional material relevant to key ongoing debates in the theory of
grammar, such as the need to have a distinction between adjuncts and
specifiers, and the lack of head movement (N movement).
