- This paper examines various types of coordination structures in English.
Unlike regular coordinate structures, some data show that the coordinately
conjoined elements are syntactically different categories, thus violating
Chomsky's same type condition and Williams's Law of the Coordination of
Likes. I show that the coordination of the unlike categories dubbed as CUCs
in the literature can best be accounted for by a semantically oriented
condition such that constituents can be coordinately conjoined if they are
semantically connected with each other.
