Prenominal and postnominal reduced relative clauses: arguments against unitary analyses

Publication: Bucharest Working Papers in Linguistics, IX (1)
Publisher:Universitatea din București
Abstract:These last years, several analyses have been proposed in which prenominal and postnominal reduced relatives are merged in the same position. Kayne (1994) claims that both types of reduced relative clauses are the complement of the determiner. More recently, Cinque (2005) has proposed that both types are merged in the functional projections of the noun, at the left edge of the modifier system. In this paper, I argue against a unitary analysis of prenominal and postnominal participial reduced relatives.
Key words:reduced relatives, participle, postnominal eventives, prenominal eventives, prenominal statives, pronominal resultatives
