In this presentation I would like to revisit one aspect of the structure of the functional sequence of the clause in light of certain recent developments, in particular Kayne’s (2016) proposal that all heads are necessarily silent, and see how the derivation of head-initial/head-final word orders that I proposed in Cinque (2016) could be made compatible with this idea (despite an apparent prima facie difficulty).
