Limiting severely the technical apparatus of syntax, the author argues that the properties of Number at the interfaces are shown to provide a simple and precise solution for longstanding problems of compositionality raised by adjectival modification. There is also a unified analysis of the many other properties involved. The model provides a principled explanation of the variation concerning nominals without determiners (Bare NPs) and determiners without nominals (clitics).
