Determinerless noun phrases in Old Romance passives
In this paper we take the existence of Bare Noun Phrases acting as subjects or displaced complements as evidence for the licensing properties of Functional Categories other that Determiner Phrase in earlier stages of Romance Languages such as Spanish and Catalan. The fact that in Spanish and Catalan subjects in passive sentences can be licensed inside the Verb Phrase also facilitates the use of BNPs in this context.
