An approach to Basque adnominal PPs
Georg Höhn
October 2011
 

This squib presents an analysis of the morpheme -ko, which is mandatory with adnominal PPs in Basque. In contrast to the traditional analysis of -ko as "locative genitive" marker, it is identified as an attributive linker. The linker realises a C-like functional head at the high end of the extended projection of P. It facilitates the adnominal use of the PP, which is assumed to be adjoined to the NP it modifies.
