This study is a generative approach to the difference between the determiner phrase in Spanish versus the determiner phrase in English. The author argues against most claims concerning the Spanish determiner phrase and poses her own argument. Her claim is that the determiner phrase in Spanish is not a functional category, but rather a lexical category. By making a solid case for viewing the Spanish determiner as lexical, McManness can more elegantly and economically account for the proper government of empty categories in Spanish determiner phrases. McManness's argument makes the book unique and provides readers with a new way of looking at Spanish grammar. This thorough and innovative book will be highly appropriate for theoretical linguistics seminars in Spanish versus English and generative linguistics seminars in Spanish syntax. Contents: Preface; Acknowledgements; Theoretical Background; General Theoretical Assumptions About Determiner Phrases; Demonstratives and Definite Articles; Possessives and Genitives; Conclusions; Bibliography; Index of Names; Index of Subjects.
