Sentences containing two (or more) modal elements of the same modal type and quantificational force often yield a concord reading, where the semantics of the sentence seems to contain only one modal operator, rather than a cumulative reading. In this paper I have argued that Modal Concord is a grammatical phenomenon and that despite superficial differences, it shows close resemblance to the phenomenon of Negative Concord. I have argued that the approach by (Zeijlstra 2004), who takes Negative Concord to be an instance of syntactic agreement, naturally extends to Modal Concord, and I have provided an analysis for Modal Concord by arguing that modal elements carry a modal feature specified for quantificational force, which is either semantically interpretable or uninterpretable. Furthermore, I have proposed that modal auxiliaries are sem...
Normative conceptions of embodiment can operate only by fixing or essentialising the body’s necessarily processural (or existential) ontology. Given that traditional film-based photography and cinema are reliant on the arrestation of a process, a process of fixing analogous to that seen in the constitution of normative bodies, this paper suggests that it is not surprising that photography has long been considered a privileged realm for the presentation of idealised bodies. Some critics have of course problematised this primarily indexical role of the photographic image by showing how this is disrupted in avant-garde practices in both photography and the cinema. In this paper, what is suggested instead is that the rupture of indexicality in traditional cinema and photography was always already inscribed in the technological apparatus or...
