On Some Prepositions That Look DP-Internal

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This chapter examines the question of prepositions, pursuing the argument in favor of an above-verb phrase (VP) source for some of them. Certain quantifier movements must then be reanalyzed as instances of remnant movement, as had been suggested for some cases in earlier work by Antonia Androutsopoulou and Michal Starke. This chapter contains, in addition, an extended argument in favor of the presence of unpronounced elements such as AMOUNT and NUMBER and MUCH and MANY, in French and in English. In conclusion, many instances of French de ("of") and English of that look determiner phrase (DP)-internal can be reanalyzed as being VP-external. What looks like movement of bare "quantifiers" such as peu ("few"/"little") turns out to be remnant movement. In many cases there is reason to postulate the presence of an unpronounced AMOUNT or NUMBER or an unpronounced MUCH or MANY, both in French and in English.
