This paper analyzes degree constructions in Romanian and describes a visibility requirement based on representations at the level of Logical Form. The proposal thus follows the mechanism of LF-binding (Hulk & Verheugd 1994). We transfer this insight to the extraction and binding of degrees, by observing certain correlations between constructions for which a parameter of degree binding has been suggested (Beck, Oda & Sugisaki 2004), and the overt realization of the same key constructions in Romanian. The analysis is developed in terms of last-resort insertion of functional material within the adjectival shell which is bound over at LF.
