Suppressing the Zs.
Zwicky, A. M.
Journal of Linguistics, v23 n1 p133-48 Mar 1987
In the frameword of generalized phrase-structure grammar, possessive clitics (POSS), bound words (BWs), and phrasal affixes (PAs) are analyzed. It is argued that English POSS should be treated as an edge-located inflectional affix, since POSS is suppressed in the presence of other Z affixes (plural, other possessives). (Author/LMO)
