Subject:  CP/DP parallellism

Dear colleagues,

In the (generative) literature on noun phrases, there exists the idea
that the functional categories of the noun phrase are direct
equivalents of the functional categories in the clause. E.g. according
to Abney (1987), K (for Case) is the equivalent of C, and D is the
equivalent of Infl. Others, such as Szabolcsi (1987, 1994) argue that
D is the equivalent of C, and Poss (or some such head) is seen as the
equivalent of Infl or T. From what I understand, a similar
parallellism is seen between Num and Asp.

The past few days I have been trying to find more literature
discussing these parallellisms, but I have not been very
successful. So I am turning to this List. If you should know of papers
or articles discussing some of these parallellisms, even if it is just
in a single section, I would be very grateful if you would let me know
about them.

Thanks in advance.

sincerely,

Joost Kremers

    The contrast between (i) and (ii) (from Postal and Pullum 1982)
suggests that the Parallelism Requirement may also impose restrictions
on morphological operations: if contraction happens in the first
conjunct, it must also occur in the second conjunct. Does anyone know
of other cases of morphological parallelism like this one?

(i)	I want to dance and to sing.
(ii)	*I wanna dance and to sing.

Thanks

Cristina.
