Title: Orações consecutivas finitas em Português Europeu: uma análise sintática
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: In this paper we analyse antecedent and free consecutives. In consecutives with overt antecedents, we adopt the splitdegree hypothesis of Corver (1993, 1997a, b 2013), which has the advantage of separating determiner-like degreeword and quantifier-like words. We also adopt Kennedys (1997, 1999) and Corvers (2013) hypotheses thatconsecutive CPs are adjuncts that act as modifiers of a DegP, which form a unit with the degree/quantifying word atthe level of LF. This analysis is extended to free consecutive clauses. We claim that in free consecutives the gradableexpression is an elided constituent included in the sentence that contains the consecutive CP, whose content must berecovered by (an element of) the sentence to which it is paratactically related.
