Exploring Nanosyntax

Kim (2011) observes that particles marking Korean clauses as interrogatives have the same shape as second person pronouns and proposes that this is because the particles are the addressee of a performative projection at the top of interrogative clauses. This chapter shows that this neat generalization is naturally implemented by phrasal spellout (and its Superset Theorem), including the fact that in some dialects the shape of some particles drift away from pronouns.
