This monograph presents a new model of the internal syntax of nominal phrases. The model is mainly based on Scandinavian, since with the wide range of variation that Scandinavian displays in the nominal domain, despite the close genetic relationship between the different varieties, Scandinavian is particularly well-suited for explorations into nominal syntax. Among the topics covered are the basic syntactic structure of nominal phrases, definiteness, adjective phrases, possessors, relative clauses, and nominal predicates. The model is however meant to be a tool for analysing the nominal phrases of any language. While the base-generated structure is taken to be universally uniform, the model allows for variation in the feature makeup of individual elements, in the phonological realisation of the features, and in the movements that may or may not apply. Hence, as shown in the final chapter, patterns found in languages outside of Scandinavian can also be accounted for within the model.

Table of Contents
“This volume represents scholarship par excellence in the generative treatment of nominal phrases. Both the empirical and conceptual coverage of natural data in Scandinavian languages make this work a must-see reference for scholars involving in any serious study of DP-syntax and/or Scandinavian linguistics [...] this work represents an amazingly thorough treatment of nominals in Scandinavian and will serve as a benchmark reference work for many years to come.”
