Editorial Reviews


" Imposters offers a fast-paced ride, with a lively, direct and down-to-earth presentation through the fascinating landscape of noun phrase types that look like one thing but in some ways behave like another. Along the way, the reader learns myriad new things about antecedence and the status of 'accidental coreference', the syntactic representation of implicit antecedents and of the speaker and addressee, 'camouflage' noun phrases (like your ass and your/her Highness), appositions, epithets, agreement, coordinate structures, and predicate nominal constructions. This exploration of largely uncharted territory, rich in empirical detail, presents plenty of interesting and often surprising consequences for the analysis of better-studied phenomena and for linguistic theory in general."--Marcel den Dikken, Professor of Linguistics, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York
