View A Computational Approach To The Syntax Of Displacement And The Semantics Of Scope 2010
It focuses on wh-displacement and operator scope and addresses the challenge they pose to theoretical linguistics: How are form and meaning related and to which extent do syntax and semantics operate in parallel? A common approach of formal grammar theories is to assume that displacement and scope construal go hand in hand, and consequently to impose a strict correspondence between syntax and semantics.
This approach is challenged, however, by a considerable amount of cases where the syntactic position of an operator expression does not coincide with its semantic scope position. This dissertation therefore pursues the opposite approach. It argues that syntactic displacement and semantic scope-taking do not interact at all.

The overall picture that is developed is that grammar consists of two parts: a core system for establishing local dependencies, with syntax and semantics operating in parallel, and extensions to this core system for establishing non-local dependencies, with syntax and semantics operating independently. In developing this picture, it is shown that a substantial amount of data such as pronunciation in wh-clusters, order preservation with multiple displacement, remnant movement and freezing, as well as different scopal behavior can indeed be accounted for with a syntax and semantics that are largely independent from one another.

PCOS typically involves the prescence of irregular or absent menstrual periods in combination with excess androgens male hormones and possilby polycystic ovaries. Increased production or sensitivity to androgens commonly leads to hirsutism male-patterned hair growth , acne, or alopecia thinning or loss of scalp hair.
Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Learn More. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, also known as CAH, is an inherited disorder affecting the hormones produced and released by the adrenal glands. Approximately 1 in 12, infants is affected by CAH.
