  • Micro-syntactic variation in American English Negative Concord

    This paper presents a series of quantitative gradient acceptability judgment studies of English negative sentences. Adult native speakers of American English recruited via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk were asked to rate sentences on a scale of 1 to 7 on the basis of their naturalness. The main study compares sentences with the marker n’t and either a negative object (e.g. ‘John didn’t eat nothing’) or a negative subject in canonical position (‘nobody didn’t eat’). Each sentence type has two possi...

    Reduplication in Russian verbs and adjectives: motivating form with morphosyntactic constraints

    In this paper, I argue that the Russian verbal suffix -iva and the adjectival suffix -Vj(V) result from a unique morphological process. To this end, I point out that -iva and -Vj(V) are complex items where -i- and -j- (respectively) play an unclear role. As a first step, I focus on the representation of -iva. I take up the hypothesis of Coats (1974) where -iva is assumed to be the reduplication of an imperfectivizing suffix -(v)a. Second, I show that -Vj(V) results from a similar phenomenon: ...

    Unifying the that-trace and anti-that-trace effects

    This article proposes a unified analysis of the that-trace and anti-that-trace effects in English. Unification of these two seemingly diametrically opposed effects remains an outstanding problem. It is argued that complement and relative clauses in English exhibit systematic variation in terms of how articulated their C-domains are. This, combined with Spec-to-Spec Anti-Locality, leads to a novel analysis of the anti-that-trace and that-trace effects. The analysis has interesting theoretical ...

    When you have too many features: Auxiliaries, agreement and clitics in Italian varieties

    Syntactic variation can be ascribed to a range of factors. The Borer-Chomsky conjecture, as Mark Baker (2008) refers to it, states for instance that all parameters of variation are attributable to differences in the features of particular items (e.g. functional heads) in the lexicon. In this paper, this hypothesis is carefully considered in relation to a group of Abruzzese dialects that exhibit three seemingly unrelated syntactic patterns: split auxiliary selection, split differential object ...

    The loi de position and the acoustics of French mid vowels

    This paper reports the results of two experiments on the acoustics of French mid vowels in a variety in which close-mid vowels ([e], [ø], [o]) occur in open syllables and open-mid vowels ([ɛ], [oe], [ɔ]) in closed syllables, according to the loi de position. Open-mid allophones have consistently higher F1 realizations and more central F2 realizations than their close-mid counterparts, but are not consistently shorter. These results are problematic for accounts of the loi de position as a patt...
