  • Fully bare nominals in two Creoles: A description and a tentative constructional account

    Kihm, Alain (2010)
    Two creole languages are compared in this paper with respect to the possible reference of fully bare nominals (FBNs) in them. One is a Portuguese-related Creole, Kriyol spoken in Guinea-Bissau and Casamance, the other is a French-related Creole, Haitian. Both languages are similar in allowing for FBNs, i.e. uninflected nouns not in the scope of a determiner or a quantifier, in all syntactic positions and grammatical functions. The main difference between them is that Haitian avails itself of ...

    High tone spread in Saramaccan serial verb constructions

    Kramer, Marvin (2004)
    Saramaccan is an Atlantic English creole with substratal tonal features, including high tone spread. While high tone spread is generally leftward, an analysis of rightward spread accounts for the data in serial verb constructions where there are high tones that cannot be explained by leftward spread. However, there are other serial verb constructions with high tones that can be explained by leftward spread. There are two sets of high tone spread rules, then, but rightward spread is basically ...

    The prosody-syntax interface and the status of pronouns in Papiamentu

    Kouwenberg, Silvia (2007)
    This paper shows that a distinction should be made between weak and strong pronouns in Papiamentu. The members of the weak series are prosodically and distributionally deficient, in contrast with those of the strong series. Their prosodic deficiency means that weak pronouns need to be prosodically licensed. I argue that this is achieved by integration into a tone domain, and, in the case of weak object pronouns, by incorporation into the prosodic word of the preceding verb. Tone polarisation,...


    Freitas, Maria João (2003)
    The papers selected for this volume deal with several topics of both L1 and L2 acquisition of Portuguese. The research reported on each of the papers relies on empirically robust sets of data and covers different aspects of the acquisition of the European and the Brazilian varieties of Portuguese. The authors use different theoretical frameworks and formal tools to evaluate evidence from the perception and the production modules. Their main goal is however the same: they all seek to a better ...

    Utterance Signaling and Tonal Levels in Dominican Spanish Declaratives and Interrogatives

    Willis, Erik (2007)
    This paper examines the tonal patterns of sentences in Dominican Spanish produced in response to three pragmatic intents: declaratives, absolute interrogatives, and pronominal interrogatives. The results indicate that there are systematic variations between the three utterance types; however, the final tonal rise was not a determining factor. Distinct patterns of tonal levels distinguished each of the three utterance types. The pronominal interrogatives demonstrated a higher initial tonal val...
