  • Reciprocal expressions and the Maximal Typicality Hypothesis

    Poortman, Eva B.; Struiksma, Marijn E.; Kerem, Nir; Friedmann, Naama; Winter, Yoad (2018)
    In two experiments, we study the effects of verb concepts on the interpretation of reciprocal expressions in Dutch and Hebrew. One experiment studies Hebrew to test a previous account, the Strongest Meaning Hypothesis, which suggests that listeners resolve ambiguity in reciprocal sentences using the logically strongest meaning that is consistent with the context. The results challenge this proposal, as participants often adopt a weaker meaning than what the Strongest Meaning Hypothesis expect...

    Resolving (DAT = ACC) ≠ GEN

    Starke, Michal (2017)
    The traditional notion of case is too coarse to distinguish between the English prepositional dative and the English shifted dative, the Spanish bare accusative and the Spanish “a” accusative, etc. I show that refining our typology of case to include such distinctions resolves a *ABA counterexample to Caha’s 2009 case hierarchy and I discuss where these new distinctions should be placed in the underlying representation of case.

    The theory and syntactic representation of control structures: An analysis from Amharic

    Leung, Tommi; Halefom, Girma (2017)
    This paper conducts a detailed syntactic analysis of control structures in Amharic and sheds light on the current approaches to their syntactic representation and the operation thereof. Amharic control structures consist of the following components: (i) they are marked by the specific clause marker (CM) lɨ-; (ii) the control clause always contains an imperfective verb; (iii) the control predicate is fully inflected by phi-features which are coindexical to the matrix subject; (iv) the subject ...

    How (not) to derive a *ABA: The case of Blansitt’s generalisation

    Caha, Pavel (2017)
    In this paper, I provide an account for the so-called Blansitt’s generalisation (Blansitt 1988). The generalisation says that in the linear sequence DATIVE—ALLATIVE—LOCATIVE, only adjacent functions may be marked the same. In previous work (Bobaljik 2012; Starke 2009; Caha 2009), analogous *ABA patterns have been encoded by the so-called feature cumulation. Feature cumulation means that the amount of features characteristic for individual categories monotonically grows in the order given in a...

    The structure of approximative numerals in German

    Pankau, Andreas (2018)
    This paper argues that approximative numerals in German such as an die zwanzig ‘up to twenty’ are not numerals contained in a PP, as suggested by Corver & Zwarts (2006). Such numerals are compared with regular PPs and shown to never pattern with PPs. Rather, they pattern with numerals modified by an adverb like ungefähr zwanzig ‘approximately twenty.’ The words appearing before the numeral in approximative numerals such as an die ‘up to’ are hence adverbs, contrary to surface appearance. ...
