In Section 1, I present a recent formalisation of modifi cation and conjunction structures by Chomsky (2020), in terms of sequences of Pair-Merge units, each including a Link element identifi ed with the nominaliser/verbaliser n/v. In Sections 2-3, I argue that the Link element is overtly visible in many languages in the form of (adnominal) linkers. In Section 4, I suggest that Case stacking, and Concord may also be viewed as externalizations of Links.
