  • 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...

    Review of Grammatical theory: From transformational grammar to constraint-based approaches, volumes 1 and 2, 2016

    Putnam, Michael T. (2017)
    This review takes a closer look at Stefan Müller’s (2016) recent open-access textbook that surveys grammatical theories (with a focus on syntax).

    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...

    Adverb placement among heritage speakers of Spanish

    Camacho, José; Kirova, Alena (2018)
    This study examines verb-adverb word order among heritage speakers of Spanish using an acceptability judgment task and a selection task in affirmative and negative sentences. Heritage speakers of Spanish show reaction patterns to stimuli fundamentally similar to those of the monolingual comparison group, but with several subtle differences. In affirmative sentences, they show a slightly higher preference for the options that are consistent with both the Spanish and the English grammars (in af...
