(p.334) Chapter 7 Conclusion
Nominal Arguments and Language Variation

Li Julie Jiang

Oxford University Press

Chapter 7 summarizes the major claims of this work and offers avenues for future research. The five claims are (i) bare numeral containing phrases have identical D-less structures in classifier and number marking languages; (ii) for classifier languages, it is not necessary to assume a functional category D to account for nominal arguments; (iii) the Universal DP Hypothesis is inadequate to account for cross-linguistic variation and makes different predications about classifier languages than those in this book; (iv) article determiners in classifier languages are expected; and (v) language variation is due primarily to four factors (outlined in the book).

Keywords:   classifier languages, nominal arguments, cross-linguistic variation, D-less structure, D
