  • Existential unaccusativity and new discourse referents

    Irwin, Patricia (2018)
    It is well-known that new information strongly disprefers subject position in English (Horn 1986; Prince 1981; 1992; Beaver et al., 2005), even though English allows indefinite subjects. English is therefore seen as one of the many languages that adheres to the given-new contract (Clark & Haviland, 1977). This paper argues that a subset of intransitive sentences in English readily establishes new discourse referents in subject position—in an apparent breach of the given-new contract. Thes...

    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...

    Modulation of the following segment effect on English coronal stop deletion by syntactic boundaries

    Tamminga, Meredith (2018)
    Variable deletion of word-final coronal stops in English is strongly conditioned by whether the following segment is a consonant or a vowel. This paper uses corpus data to show that this following segment effect is weaker across strong syntactic boundaries (such as between independent matrix clauses) than across weak syntactic boundaries (between a verb and its direct object). This result is argued to be compatible with the Production Planning Hypothesis: that following context effects on pho...

    SyMiLa and the Atlas linguistique de la France: A tool for the study of Gallo-Romance syntax

    Dagnac, Anne (2018)
    This paper presents different ways in which the Gallo-Romance data of the Atlas linguistique de la France (ALF) can contribute to syntactic description, typology and analysis. After briefly presenting the SyMiLa project, which aims at making such data accessible, it presents four case-studies. The first one focuses on wh-questions, which provide a horizontal perspective over the whole Gallo-Romance varieties. The complete data set shows how the dominant wh-structures distribute over the Gallo...

    Recognizing copies: On the definition of Non-Distinctiveness

    Muñoz Pérez, Carlos (2018)
    The standard approach to Non-Distinctiveness, i.e., the “sameness” relation between constituents forming a chain under Copy Theory, involves an indexing mechanism that marks as non-distinct the syntactic objects created by the Copy operation. I argue that Non-Distinctiveness is better explained as an inclusion relation between the features of constituents in a phrase marker. A representational mechanism of chain formation based on this definition is shown to offer analytical and conceptual ad...
