Estrogen treatment of immature or ovariectomized mature rats induces an increase in uterine cGMP content, with a peak 2-3 h after hormone administration. This response to estrogenic action also develops in vitro, in incubated uterine horns, thus excluding the intervention of another organ. Its function is still unknown. We show here that treatment of(More)
The effects of cortisol on several oestrogenic responses of the rat uterus were measured. Whether injected i.v., simultaneously with oestradiol-17 beta, or i.p,, 12 h before the oestradiol, cortisol had no effects on the oestrogen-induced increases in uterine glycogen, protein and DNA contents. In contrast, cortisol inhibited both uterine eosinophilia and(More)
I argue that despite their traditional verb-first vs. verb second partition, Welsh and Breton both instantiate a ban on verb-first and I present an analysis of these two languages as fundamentally verb second. In this view, so-called verb first orders prototypically illustrated by Welsh result from inconspicuous strategies to fill in the preverbal position,(More)

Within the minimalist approach, however, this traditional view has been argued to be problematic (cf. e.g. Chomsky 1995, 2001; Brody 2000; Surányi 2005; Matushansky 2006).Firstly, head movement generally seems to lack semantic effects. Secondly, it violates well-established principles of narrow syntax: for instance, it goes against the Extension Condition(More)
This article investigates the learnability filter (LF) hypothesis, according to which the set of logically possible grammars predicted by linguistic theory is reduced to a proper subset of learnable grammars by external principles of language learning. Anti-faithfulness constraints (Alderete, 2001a) provide a linguistic theory that predicts the existence of(More)
Zurich German (ZG) relative clauses are remarkable from a Germanic point of view in that resumptive pronouns are employed instead of relative pronouns. Reconstruction effects and Strong Crossover violations show that movement is involved in the derivation of ZG relative clauses. Matching effects sensitive to case and preposition provide crucial evidence(More)
