In this paper we argue that Merge must be prevented from creating illegal constituents. In particular, we propose that the application of Merge is sensitive to the selection properties of the items involved; then the selection properties single out a subset of lexical items that are able to introduce recursion.

In this paper we argue that Merge must be prevented from creating illegal constituents. In particular, we propose that the application of Merge is sensitive to the selection properties of the items involved; then the selection properties single out a subset of lexical items that are able to introduce recursion.
