Polydefinite DPs in Old Romanian

Abstract:This paper focuses on Old Romanian DPs in which the definite article surfaces more than once: on the noun and on another item, typically an adjective. While the literature analyzes these DPs as involving multiple agree with the definiteness feature on the D head, I propose that Old Romanian made use of a feature that is no longer syntactically active in Modern Romanian, namely referentiality. Thus the analysis I propose computes over two morphosyntactic features: definiteness and referentiality. Both of these are unvalued features of D and the proposal is that the definite article is spelled out disjointly both on items that probe D to check/value the [def] feature, and on items that check/value the [Ref] feature on D. One advantage of this approach over a multiple agree approach is that long distance agree, which was posited for Old Romanian in previous work on definite DPs can be dispensed with.
