Revisitando a tipologia da ordem de palavras

Microparâmetros no léxico

This contribution explores the parameter governing the order of heads and their complements within the general principle that the head and its complements form a phrase. This parameter seems to be the basis of many lexical differences between languages. In this text, it will still be maintained that even cases of seemingly general parameters, such as word order, can be formulated in lexical terms.
