An argument in favour of a vP phase boundary in raising, passive, and unaccusative verbs
Naiara Centeno, Luis Vicente
July 2008

Arregi & Centeno (2005) and Centeno (in prep.) show that the Spanish determiner sharing construction is sensitive to phase boundaries. We make use of this property to show that raising, passive, and unaccusative verbs project a phase boundary at the vP level, as proposed by Sauerland (2003) and Legate (2003), and contrary to Chomsky (2000, 2001).
