The lon(-) mutants of Escherichia coli grow apparently normally except that, after temporary periods of inhibition of deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis, septum formation is specifically inhibited. Under these conditions, long, multinucleate, nonseptate filaments result. The lon(-) mutation also creates a defect such that wild-type bacteriophage lambda fails(More)

I show that the case and phi features on T can behave independently, and do not necessarily constitute an indivisible feature bundle.

This paper utilizes agreement phenomena in Icelandic control to investigate the nature of the relationship between the controller and PRO. Concord between predicate adjectives and subjects suggests that PRO always bears the controller’s phi features and optionally bears the controller’s case feature. To date, no proposal has divorced this necessary(More)
