- We argue that postulating A as an independent syntactic category poses questions difficult to answer without stipulations, and thus should be taken with care. First, there seems to be no consistent diagnostics that uniquely singles out A. Second, "adjectives" behave very much like verbs in various morphosyntactic contexts. In addition, the differences observed between V and "A" are not strong enough to warrant postulating A since they are not solely due to the categorial difference.
