5.6. Bibliographical notes
quickinfo

Attributive inflection has received a great deal of attention in traditional grammar, and the discussion in this chapter relies heavily on the description that can be found in, e.g., Haeseryn et al. (1997). For the description of the order of attributively used adjectives with respect to each other and other prenominal elements within the nominal projection we have relied heavily on some important work in the structuralist tradition, especially, Van der Lubbe (1978) and Paardekooper (1986). These issues have also received attention within the generative tradition: important studies on Dutch are Van Gestel (1986) and Kester (1994b/1996), and Valois (2006) provides a more general review of the generative literature on this topic. Kester (1996) also provides a discussion of N-ellipsis in terms of the pro analysis put forth by Lobeck (1995); see Lobeck (2006) for a review of alternative theoretical approaches to the issue and an extensive list of references. A more general and theoretical discussion of attributive adjectives can be found in Alexiadou (2007: part III), to which we refer the reader for references to several more theoretical approaches to the issues discussed in this chapter.
