  • The morphology-phonology interface in European Portuguese. Review of Marina Vigário, The Prosodic Word in European Portuguese, Berlin – New York: Mouton de Gruyter, 2003, xvi + 440 pp.

    Booij, Geert (2004)
    The interface between syntactic and morphological structures and their phonological correlates is an important part of the grammar of natural languages. In this book, a revised version of her dissertation defended in November 2001 at the University of Lisbon, Marina Vigário (henceforth V) investigates this interface with respect to European Portuguese. The kind of Portuguese investigated is the standard variety of Portuguese as spoken in Lisbon by people of 20-40 years old.

    Agreement and markedness in the ascription of gender to novel animate nouns by children acquiring Portuguese

    Corrêa, Letícia M. Sicuro; Augusto, Marina R. A.; Castro, Ana (2011)
    This paper focuses on the role of agreement in the ascription of gender to animate nouns by children acquiring Portuguese. An elicited production task was used in which children were requested to refer to novel objects named by pseudo masculine/feminine nouns. It aimed at verifying the extent to which an agreeing element (the determiner), the noun-ending or a correlation between the gender of the determiner and the noun-ending would guide the ascription of a pseudo-noun to a masculine/feminin...

    The Grammatical Function of Papiamentu Tone

    Kouwenberg, Silvia (2004)
    I propose that tone in Papiamentu is a marker of the morphosyntactic category of a given form. Its primary function, therefore, is grammatical. This account of Papiamentu tone differs from previously proposed accounts, which treat tone in Papiamentu as a lexical property (Römer, 1991; Rivera-Castillo, 1998) or as a purely phonological property (Devonish & Murray, 1995).

    Topic vs. Comment in some Subject Inversion Sentences in French and Portuguese

    Ambar, Manuela; Pollock, Jean-Yves (2002)
    In Portuguese, though not in French, postverbal subjects provide new information, i.e. in the unmarked case postverbal subjects are foci in Portuguese, not topics, as claimed in Ambar (1988). However, in Portuguese or French wh-questions the postverbal subject does not provide or ask for new information. These postverbal subjects are not foci. These facts lead one to raise the following two questions: (i) why is it that Portuguese syntax allows for a post-verbal topic in wh-questions, an opti...

    Conjoined Constraints and Phonological Acquisition

    Giovana Bonilha (2003)
    Since the start of Optimality Theory (Prince & Smolensky, 1993), research on phonological acquisition has explored the explanatory potential of constraint theories. This study, also based on Optimality Theory, attempts to analyze the acquisition of CVVC syllable structure by Brazilian Portuguese children and addresses the issue of Local Conjunction (Smolensky, 1995, 1997) in research that deals with problems of phonological acquisition.
