Single-DP and Double-DP Qualitative Constructions in Romanian

Publication: Revue roumaine de linguistique, LVI (2), p. 115-135
Publisher:Editura Academiei
Abstract:The paper analyzes qualitative binominals in Romanian with the aim of operating a distinction between Single-DP qualitatives and Double-DP qualitatives. The investigation of the syntactic and semantic distinctions between the two will lead to an analysis of Double-DP qualitatives in terms of periphery quantificational constructions checking P features in an outer D and conforming to the contrastive Topic – Focus information packaging. In the framework we adopt (apud Svenonius 2004, Laenzlinger 2005, Cornilescu 2010), DPs are phases. Phases are modal and quantificational and are characterized by having peripheries which check P-features. Double-DP qualitatives will be shown to feature exclusively prenominal adjectives and definiteness agreement, in sharp contrast with Single-DP qualitatives. The semantic type of N2 also differs from that of Single-DP qualitatives N2, i.e. N2 with Double-DP qualitatives always denotes an individual.
