Abstract: This article deals with the existence of a DP layer on the top of NP. Based on evidence presented, (Left Branch Extraction, Zwicky’s test, Boškovi,s Generalization, Noun/Pronoun Assymetries, Status of Determiners and Evidence from acquisition studies), I conclude that the NP does not project further, and is a maximal projection in a nominal phrase.
