Abstract

This work deals with the morphosyntactical relations between a noun complement and an adjective in Dét V-n (de N1 + Adj) noun phrases in which V-n is a noun derived from a transitive verb. These noun phrases are similar to transitive verb structures in which the noun N1 is the direct object of the verb. We show that the operations that relate the two structures N0 V N1 and Dét V-n (de N1 + Adj) consist in zeroing the N0 argument through a passive or a middle transformation.
