The X-Bar Theory of Phrase Structure.
Kornai, Andras; Pullman, Geoffrey K.
Language, v66 n1 p24-50 Mar 1990
This paper demonstrates that a formalization of the content of X-bar theory reveals very little substance in its claims. Six conditions that encapsulate X-bar theory are discussed: lexicality, succession, uniformity, maximality, centrality, and optionality. (50 references) (JL)
