The proposed correlation additionally turns into vital in anaphoric family members with appreciate to adjuncts. in simple terms an R-expression spelled out and interpreted within the CP section of an accessory clause can corefer with the coindexed pronoun. The examine additionally discusses adverbial ordering and exhibits that the relative order of definite adverbials should be reversed in the event that they take place in several levels.

Pavel1 tu knihu2 [vP t1 koupil t2]. ’ d.

E. Int) but they cannot receive the backgrounded interpretation there, which should also be involved in Int. According to Chomsky (2001), OS languages can move shifted objects from the OS position to a higher position in the sentence. As he points out, building on Holmberg (1999), shifted pronouns in Mainland Scandinavian and shifted full objects in Icelandic are in a position higher than the edge of vP. Therefore Chomsky argues that OS languages have a phonological rule Disl that moves shifted objects to some higher position.

The next argument supporting the proposed analysis is based on coordination data. It is widely held that only constituents (of the same type) can be coordinated. Let us begin with sentence (9b), which is repeated and coordinated with appropriate constituents in (11). Example (11b) shows that soused is a constituent of the phrase Pavla nakopal odpoledne soused and so can be coordinated with another similar type of DP. Similarly, (11c) demonstrates that odpoledne soused is a constituent (containing the constituent soused) and so can be coordinated with another similar type of vP.
