Description This paper compares the insertion procedure in Distributed Morphology and Nanosyntax. It shows that nonterminal spell out is difficult to model using the Subset Principle of Distributed Morphology, and the Superset Principle used in Nanosyntax handles the empirical phenomena with ease. Based on the linear contiguity property of paradigms, I argue against modelling the effects of phrasal spell out using zero markers.
