Title: A Unified Theory of Verbal and Nominal Projections
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-514388-4
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

Syntactically speaking, it has long been known that noun phrases are
parallel to clauses in many respects. While most syntactic theories
incorporate this principle, nouns have generally been regarded as inferior
to verbs in terms of their licensing abilities, and nominal projections
have been regarded as less complex than verbal projections in terms of the
number of functional categories that they contain. Ogawa, however, argues
that clauses and noun phrases are perfectly parallel. This book provides a
unified theory of clauses and noun phrases, ultimately helping to simplify
numerous thorny issues in the syntax/morphology interface.
