Unlike the English PrP, it can be modified by past-time adverbs (11a), but in a more restricted way than Italian PrP, since (1 lb) is ungrammatical. (11) a. Esta mañana a las seis Juan ha abierto la ventana. 'At six o'clock this morning Juan [has] opened the window'. b. * Ayer Juan ha abierto la ventana.

We saw earlier (see example [24]) that the systematic intervention of 3 between Gen0 and the variable in D° prevented generic readings for DS in Spanish. To obtain generic readings for noun phrases, Spanish resorts to another mechanism in the language, namely Spec-Head Agreement. I propose that the constituent that is generated in [Spec GenP] is the one that, by Spec-Head Agreement, gets to be interpreted as generic. In such configurations (see ([27]), the relation between Gen0 and D° is not one of (operator/variable) binding, and thus cannot be achieved with an empty D°; the Spec-Head Agreement mechanism for generics requires D° to be overt and so we find definite articles.
