In principle the phrase quale LIBRO can be endowed with two peripheral features, a Q feature associated to quale, and a Focus feature associated with the lexical restriction: (4) A priori one might expect the phrase to first satisfy the Q Criterion in the C-system of the indirect question, and then to continue to move to the main C-system to satisfy the Focus Criterion, much as (2b) does.

Instead, Williams argues, the word must be recognized as the domain in which re- is interpreted, and a system or module of word-formation must be recognized that feeds into syntax (Williams calls this system Derivational Morphology, contrasting it with Distributed Morphology, and appropriating the abbreviation “DM”).
