If we assume the C-neg-C question to be a Pol2 head, the binding of wh words in subject position in Mandarin and the association with focus of accented subjects in English can be uniformly accounted for in a syntactic model of focus.
Starting with a pragmatic analysis we showed that the different question forms can be analyzed as functional heads in a syntactic model for focus along the lines of Drubig (1994).
In a second step we argue that a syntactic model of focus in the sense of Drubig (1994), Kiss (1995), and Kenesei (1998) can account for the syntactic properties of the different forms.
Although these question forms have recently been discussed by a number of authors (Tsai 1990; Huang 1991; McCawley 1994; Ernst 1994), we will show that only an elaborate syntactic model of focus can account for the full range of phenomena that distinguish the different forms from one another.
The necessity to give more information by means of extending a word-combination is confronted with limitations imposed by the structure of a definite syntactic model
. Limitations of possible extension depend primarily upon grammar potencies of the model itself and consequently upon grammatical forms that constitute the word-combination.
In addition, she sets the stage for a future discussion of use of the semantic syntactic model
of genre studies as a way of explaining the global use of specific cinema genres.
What does it mean to say that Leonardo combined the visual and the verbal 'into a single, syntactic model
of exposition' or to claim that his backward writing 'offered an alternative way of reading reality, following a reverse metonymic chain'?
The transition between these two songs is effected by the mere addition of an F[MUSICAL NOTES NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] to the final tonic triad of the latter song--a syntactic model
plainly indebted to the composed-out transitions between songs in Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte.
This scenario reflects resultant issues that might be associated with a binary syntactic model
methodology in which only two syntactic functions are distinguished (i.e.
Upon reflection it becomes clear that considerations of performance ought to bear upon the construction of generative syntactic models
of linguistic competence.
(In other syntactic models
that allow for competition between derivations and/or representations, this is also usually taken to be the criterion that determines whether two derivations/representations compete).
