Abstract

The proposal which I will outline in what follows, in line with a suggestion that Rita Manzini (p. c.) made for the Latin -s morpheme, is that the /s/ morpheme in English expresses [countability]. I will further argue that the expression of this feature is a necessary requirement of DPs and clauses in inflectional languages whenever person is not expressed
