That noun phrases may constitute a binding domain is a key component among the parallelisms between the syntax of noun phrases and clauses. Reuland (2007, 2011) and Despić (2011, 2015) have shown recently that the definite article plays a crucial role in delimiting this domain, since dedicated… read more

In this paper, I discuss the grammar of ablative causes in Hungarian, and the ensuing ramifications for the general treatment of cause PPs in anticausative constructions.
