Abstract

This chapter provides well-known examples of linguistic cycles involve negation, agreement, complementizers, aspect, and articles. An element with full semantic features is reanalysed as a functional element, i.e. as having interpretable and later uninterpretable features. This cycle can be seen in structural terms through the Late Merge and the Head Preference Principles, or in terms of a reanalysis of features.
