  • Causative and facilitative serial verbs in Asian Ibero-romance Creoles – a convergence of substrate and superstrate systems?

    This paper surveys the widespread presence of two types of serial verb – the direct causative and the indirect causative – in Portuguese and Spanish lexically-based creole languages of Asia. The discussion addresses the structural nature of these valency increasing constructions, considering the semantic relations involved in their argument sharing, and contemplates the potential roles of substrate and superstrate languages in their development. It is proposed that the geographic distribution...

    Small Nominals in Brazilian Portuguese Copular Constructions

    The focus of this paper is copular clauses in Brazilian Portuguese like Mulher(es) é complicado, in which the predicate exhibits an unmarked form for gender and number (masculine singular), despite the presence of the feminine and/or plural form of the noun in subject position. We reject the analyses that propose that (i) there is a hidden infinitive clause in the subject position, (ii) the agreement is an instance of semantic agreement, and (iii) the DP subject is in A-bar position, and argu...

    Review of Prosodies. With Special Reference to Iberian Languages. Edited by Sónia Frota, Marina Vigário & Maria João Freitas (2005). Berlin & New York: Mouton de Gruyter.

    The volume under review contains the written versions of twelve of the pres-entations at the first Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia (PaPI) conference.

Both the volume and the fact that the conference of 2003 made it into a series dem-onstrate that the field is thriving in Iberian studies. The PaPI conferences are firmly rooted in the Laboratory Phonology movement and exude a healthy desire to treat phonology as a co...

    Review of Portuguese-Spanish interfaces: Diachrony, synchrony, and contact

    This volume, the first to be published in John Benjamins’ new series Issues in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics, contains 17 original contributions, in addition to an introduction by the editors.  What makes this volume unique within the extensive existing scholarship on Spanish and Portuguese linguistics is that all chapters are concerned with both  languages in some way, be it in contrast or in contact.  

    Stress removal and stress addition in Spanish

    In Spanish function words and expressions can be classified as lexically stressed or unstressed. Unstressed function words are usually realized without word-level prominence. There is also a contrast between compounds with stress on all their components and compound with a single stress, on the last member. Both in the case of function words and in the case of compounds, the facts are idiosyncratic in some respects. In this paper, these facts are presented in some detail and an analysis along...
