A few days ago, we had a conference on multidomination and I firstly saw an
andP there. The solution was to simply abandon the conditions of well-formed phrase markers below:
- Single Mother Condition (if I remember correctly)
- Nontangling Condition
However, this is a brand new hypothesis in syntax, an
andP merged two sentences having a structure as below (I made it):
So, I wanted to ask, is there any solution or description to structures as above without violating
Nontangling Condition, because this tree structure seems rather odd to me?
A Brief Explanation Why I've Found This Structure Odd
I know trees are just a way of description of syntactic structure in the cognition, however I do not know the limits of this approach. Like [created] just chooses DP dominated by VP2 out of blue, or are there boundaries?
That's why I wanted to know if there are any analyzing of structures like those without abandoning
The description I need should:
- not abandon
