In this paper, we will provide novel evidence for the availability of a sub-clausal syntax of correctiveadversative coordination ‒ along the lines of Toosarvandani (2013) and contra Vicente (2010) –coming (a) from agreement facts in Italian, (b) the existence of languages with symmetrical patterns of correctives, such as Russian. Specifically we will show that the evidence collected here supports and updates Toosarvandani (2013)s claim that basic correctives (vs. anchored correctives) are able to combine sub-clausal constituents, assuming that some cases of corrective coordination, namely the cases of basic correctives, can indeed involve conjuncts that are smaller than complete clauses.
