Mirror theory is an attempt to look at some of the central properties of syntactic representations in this spirit. The core hypothesis of this theory is that in syntactic representations complementation expresses morphological structure: X is the complement of Y only if Y-X form a morphological unit'a word. A second central assumption is the… Expand
