Henk van Riemsdijk Doubling trouble: some remarks on wh-concord in Swiss German
Abstract: The notion “doubling” is widespread in linguistics. But it is mostly used as a pre-theoretical notion that potentially covers an enormous range of phenomena. Mochilas Kanken Infantil Women Air Jordan 6 If the notion is to be of some use, we must, gradually, work our way towards a definition (or a set of definitions) of “doubling”. nike air max 2017 pas cher femme In order to do so, specific cases that might be subsumed under the term doubling must be studied in detail and analyzed and be made amenable to an account in terms of current theorizing.

    Ion Giurgea and Eva-Maria Remberger Verum focus and polar questions Abstract: We argue that some word order phenomena in Romanian and Sardinian are the result of a checking operation in the left periphery involving verum focus (i.e. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren wit focus on the polarity component of the sentence). adidas hamburg damskie

  • In Sardinian, an entire phrase headed by the lexical predicate (verbal non-finite form or non-verbal predicate) is fronted before the auxiliary. nike buty sklep adidas xeno superstar italia We argue that this order is obtained by two movement operations, head-raising of Aux to Foc and movement of the predicate phrase to SpecFoc. New Balance 373 hombre We also present the semantics of polarity focus, distinguishing several types of focus (informational, emphatic, contrastive).

    Daniela Isac Imperatives are modal
    Abstract: It has been noted repeatedly in the literature (Huntley 1982, Huntley 1984, Davies 1986, Wilson and Sperber 1988, Ninan 2005, Han 1998, etc.) that imperatives have a modal dimension, given that they present a proposition as a possible and desirable state of affairs.

For example, Portner (2007) claims that imperatives are not modal, in spite of the fact that they share a range of interpretations with modals. In this article I argue that imperatives are in fact modal and that the differences that Portner (2007) identifies are relevant for distinguishing not only between priority modals and imperatives, but between two larger classes of verbal forms, that include priority modals and imperatives, respectively. Crucially, the larger class of verbal forms that includes imperatives and that contrasts with priority modals are undisputedly modal. Thus, differing from priority modals does not necessarily imply lack of modality, but simply a different type of modality.

    Alina-Mihaela Tigău The Accusative morpheme -(Y)I in Turkish and differential object marking in Romanian
    Abstract: Romanian differentially marked object DPs and object DPs carrying the accusative morphological marker –(y)i in Turkish pattern alike in that they acquire a specific (D-linked / covert partitive) meaning. The semantic contribution of specificity as D-linking is to link the denotation of the (specific) DP in question to previously established referents. New Balance 009 męskie Nike Air Max 2016 Dames Zwart nike air max 2017 heren blauw The referent of the specific DP is thus a subset of (or stands in some recoverable relation to) a familiar object. Maglia Paul George The anaphoric interpretation seems to find a justification if one considers that the doubled / dislocated DP moves out of VP and into SpecVP (the VP phase edge), which is a position where, according to Lopez (2009) pragmatic rules apply. Nike Air Max TN Femme The feature [+a] is assigned to SpecvP, triggering the anaphoric interpretation of DOM-ed DPs.

  • Nike Roshe Run Heren The doubled / dislocated DP does move out of the VP, as pointed out by the existence of inverse binding effects (Cornilescu 2006). fjallraven kanken backpacks uk Lastly, we formalize the semantic contribution of differentially marked DPs with the aid of DRT. Canotte Indiana Pacers The underlying idea of this formalization was that the denotation of the direct object DP is related to the denotation of the clitic pronoun by means of a subset-set relation.

    Viorela-Valentina Dima How do adjectival modifiers contribute to the temporal interpretation of nominals?
    Abstract: Starting from the assumption that nominals contain (at least) one internal temporal variable which may be located in time by various cross-linguistic means (see Pustejovsky 1995, 1998 a.o.), the aim of the present paper is to examine the way in which adjectival modifiers influence the temporal interpretation of head nominals. New Balance 999 hombre We will analyze examples which contain relational adjectives (e.g. fjallraven kanken mini (enfants) 7 L new balance md 1500 homme ‘antique’, ‘modern’) and intensional adjectives (e.g. ‘former’, ‘future’, ‘present’).

    Andrei A. Avram Some phonological changes in Maltese reflected in onomastics
    Abstract: The present paper evaluates the onomastic evidence for some of the changes affecting consonants in the history of Maltese. Detroit Pistons nike air max 2017 femme rouge The analysis is based on a rich corpus of surnames, nicknames and place-names recorded between early 15th century and late 18th century. nike air max 2017 heren rood Onomastics is shown to offer valuable insights into the gradual emergence of the system of consonantal phonemes of Modern Maltese and of some of its specific phonological rules. Bart Starr Packers Jerseys Nike air max 90 pas cher It is also shown that evidence from onomastics disconfirms previous claims regarding the chronology of some of the changes affecting the consonants of Maltese.

    Simona Mazilu The use of analogy in pro-life argumentation
    Abstract: The paper is concerned with how analogy is strategically used in pro-life argumentation on abortion. nike air max 1 pas cher Adidas Superstar Heren Pragma-dialectics (van Eemeren and Grootendorst 1992) offers a set of critical questions by means of which I will evaluate the use of the argumentation based on a relation of analogy in terms of dialectical soundness.

New Balance 996 męskie I claim that these analogies mainly have a rhetorical function, to operate what has been called by Micheli (2007: 960) “a transfer of emotional consensus”.

    Abstract: This paper presents the discursive construction of ethnic identities in the verbal behaviour of the three major characters of G. nike tn 2017 homme B.
