Misconstruing Projection As Enhancement

Martin (1992: 317):
The same prepositional phrases used to enhance Processes can also be used to enhance Things, functioning as Qualifiers in nominal groups:
the restaurant at the end of the universe
the race through the galaxy
the noise from the engine room
the ship like Ford's
the present for Zaphod
the story about Trillian

The relation between the Thing and Qualifier is projection: matter, not enhancing expansion.
