A new paper of mine has been accepted for publication in Glossa: “Functional structure in the noun phrase: revisiting Hebrew nominals.” This paper revisits Ritter’s (1991) findings about nominals in Hebrew in light of recent proposals that nominal phrases lack outer functional structure and are instead projections of the noun (Bruening 2010, 2020 and Bruening, Dinh & Kim 2018). Ritter’s findings, though originally put forth to argue for an additional functional projection (NumP) between DP and NP, can be seen to provide even stronger evidence that the nominal phrase is not a projection of the noun itself.

The paper can be downloaded here.
