Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Ackema, Peter (2001)

Abstract

The paper argues that Dutch has an OCP-like ban on two adjacent identical complementizers which leads to substitution of an expected by a different complementizer. This is implemented in an optimality-theoretic approach to morphological spellout based on Grimshaw (1997). Ackema also provides evidence that the relevant OCP comes in two versions, one restricted to complete (also phonological) identity, and one blocking adjacent elements exponing the same morphosyntactic features, but possibly having different phonological form.
