DSaren barneko zenbait ordena kontu

Abstract : The order of most modifiers within DPs is tightly fixed in Basque. While adjectives must be placed after the nominal head and before demonstratives, cardinal quantifiers are placed before nouns. Besides, stacked descriptive adjectives appear to have a non-marked order, which is the mirror image of the one found in languages where adjectives follow nouns (Sproat & Shih 1988; Scott 2002). Taking into account previous typological studies (Greenberg 1963, Dryer 1992), the Basque data are analyzed following Cinque's (1999, 2005) proposal of a universal structure of merge of the DP, in a way already employed in similar studies in other languages (Fassi Fehri 1999, Aboh 2004, Shlonsky 2004).
