  • Karen Zagona
Part of the Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory book series (SNLT, volume 13)

In this chapter I will examine processes involving V0 and VP in Spanish with attention to the nature of parametrization related to subcategorization licensing of VP which were developed in Chapter 3.
