DPP Meeting


Back to the morning meeting for the DPP this Friday. We will be discussing Cheng and Sybesma's (1999) discussion of Chinese nominals from their LI paper "Bare and Not-So-Bare Nouns and the Structure of NP". This is one instantiation of the hypothesis that, for classifier languages, ClP is the maximal nominal projection. Cheng and Sybesma (2005) is an auxiliary reading, looking at how this claim is supported/instantiated via a variety of Sinitic languages.
