Chomsky’s (2020) Links and linker phenomena
Rita Manzini
May 2021
 

. In section 1, I present a recent formalisation of modification and conjunction structures by Chomsky (2020), in terms of sequences of pair merge units, each including a Link element identified with the nominaliser/verbaliser n/v. In sections 2-3, I argue that the Link element is overtly visible in many languages in the form of (nominal) linkers. In section 4, I suggest that case stacking and Concord may also be viewed as a manifestation of Links.
