Determiners and Possessives in Old English and Polish
This paper examines the functional structure of the nominal phrase of the two article-less languages Polish and Old English. First, we will review the most important approaches towards the introduction of functional projections that have been proposed in the literature. Then we will argue for the introduction of the functional layer above the lexical one in both languages despite the fact that they both have no articles. We will also notice striking similarities between Old English and Polish, the languages belonging to two different families. The data will be collected, among other sources, from electronic corpora.
