Order in the DP! On word order and the structure of the DP

Publication date2015

Novel observations show Cinque's (2005) phrasal movement proposal makes correct predictions on the grammaticality of word orders in Lebanese Arabic noun phrases. Adding an adjective yields grammatical orders Cinque (2005) cannot derive. We show that assuming an additional merge position—either for demonstratives or for numerals—derives the orders without losing Cinque's typological predictions, and we present evidence favoring an additional numeral position.
