(96) The category YP in (96) c-commands the head of XP1, but no c-command relation holds directly between YP and XP1, because the latter node, being a segment and not a category, is not visible for the computation. Then, YP c-commands XP1 indirectly by (94) and asymmetrically c-commands XP1. The C-NSR can therefore apply to an adjunct and its sister. The only problematic case again would be one in which XP1 in (96) is a head.
