Title: Labeling and depictive secondary predicates
Authors: Bianchi, Valentina
Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: Symmetric phrase structures pose a problem for the algorithm labeling syntactic nodes on the basis of minimal distance (Chomsky 2013, Rizzi 2016). This paper discusses one case of symmetry, namely adjunction configurations involving modifiers or stacked predicates. I propose that the mother node inherits the same (macro-)categorial feature from both the adjunct and its host, and the resulting configuration is interpreted via generalized conjunction. This proposal, coupled with a decomposition of event structure à la Ramchand (2008), allows for a simple analysis of depictive secondary predicates.
