On the other hand, as in the Spanish case, the 3 operator intervenes between Gen (in the higher head) and the variable in D°, thus preventing the binding of the variable by Gen and the generic interpretation.

34). Notice that in such a structural configuration, the DS (with a free variable in D°) is in the scope of 3, having raised with the verb. This configuration thus allows 3 to bind x in D°, and consequently the existential reading arises. Note that, by crossing over the subject, the 3 operator intervenes between the variable in D° and the Gen 0 operator, thus preventing Gen 0 from binding the variable x (which would have resulted in the generic reading). In this way the hypothesis in (23) accounts for both the existential readings in Spanish DS for all kinds of predicates (since all of them raise syntactically in the same way), and their lack of generic readings.
Another interesting testing ground for this hypothesis is the behavior of V2 and VSO languages. However, that falls outside the scope of this paper VERB MOVEMENT AND DETERMINERLESS PLURAL SUBJECTS 39 variable of un. In contrast, the indefinite in preverbal position, which has been base-generated there, cannot reconstruct to a position in the scope of 3 and thus, the [-spec] reading (through binding by 3) cannot arise. In this paper I have presented evidence that purely syntactic properties (here, the movement properties of the verb) may affect the interpretation of the sentence.
