Example text

Conclusion Restricting the theory to optimal principles — those deriving from conceptual necessity, and to optimal parameters — those based on the interaction of neces­ sity and usability at the interfaces, has allowed us to account in a very parsi­ monious way for variation among languages at a broad level, such as languages that differ in their choice of mode of coding information. Thus, very minimal dif­ ferences account for functional covariation between phrasal-structural languages, morphologically marking languages, and sign languages.

But in fact, it is more costly than the ordering choice arising from necessity and usability, since it requires an additional stipulation to restrict the base to a single order. For instance, in Kayne's proposal, which order is singled out depends on the crucial placement of an abstract segment A at the beginning of all strings (rather than at the end, for example). This segment has no other function and is thus equivalent to an ordering setting. Moreover, UG must be rich enough to account for the data, and not all languages are overtly SVO.

B. 'est un mensonge parfait. " (It is a lie constructed perfectly, with no flaws in it) DENIS BOUCHARD 20 (13) a. une femme seule "a woman who is alone" b. une seule femme "a sole woman, only one woman" In the post-N construction un mensonge parfait in (12b), a property is as­ signed to the set of individuals determined by the whole semantic network of mensonge: the N is modified as a whole. But when parfait appears in pre-N position, its modification is restricted to the characteristic function of mensonge: parfait in pre-N position indicates that the degree to which an object falls in the extension of the concept femme is at its utmost (which explains why pre-N parfait is often translated in English as "complete", "total" or "thorough").
