In the Dutch cadastral registration a cadastral object (real-estate object) is by definition 2D (a parcel). In intensively used areas there is a tendency to use space above and under the surface, e.g. constructions on top of each other, infrastructure above/under the ground, increasing number of cables and pipes, apartments above shops/offices/other(More)
In this paper I present an argument for a strictly derivational model of syntax based on timing of operations. Empirical evidence comes from opaque interactions of elementary operations which show that internal Merge (IM) must be split into two types: IM to intermediate landing sites and IM to nal landing sites. e split is motivated by the following(More)
1. Outline The ungrammaticality that can be observed in subject extraction from that-clauses in English, known as the that-trace effect, has attracted much attention in generative grammar. Until today, most of the writing takes it for granted that the effect is directly connected to the placement or the role of the subject. In this article we will show that(More)
This paper addresses two puzzles in the domain of verb cluster formation and proposes a solution in terms of rule ordering. The first puzzle is the so-called extraposition paradox where extraposition can target a VP that is part of a verb cluster only if the VP is topicalized but not when the VP remains clause-final. I propose that verb cluster formation(More)
Asymmetries between movement types have standardly been derived by theories of improper movement that preclude certain congurations where dier-ent kinds of movement steps are mixed in the course of displacement of a single item. However, closer inspection reveals that none of the existing accounts of improper movement can be maintained under a strictly(More)
1 Introduction Starting with Perlmutter (1971) and the filter proposed in Chomsky and Lasnik (1977), that-trace effects have been mainly conceived as a ban on subject extraction out of an embedded clause introduced by a complementizer. In this paper, we propose an alternative perspective based on the observation that that-trace (like) effects arise not only(More)
