Gabi Danon Hebrew QNP agreement: Towards an empirically based analysis

Abstract: Quantified noun phrases (QNPs) in subject position may trigger agreement with the quantifier or with the noun. Previous work (Danon 2011 and 2013) has proposed a theoretical model for explaining such alternations, but left open the empirical question of speaker preference. adidas zx 500 mujer New Balance buty męskie New Balance 574 męskie This paper describes preliminary findings from an ongoing research project aimed to answer this question. nike air max 2016 goedkoop adidas alphabounce damskie It is shown that speakers have a strong preference for noun agreement when the noun in the QNP is plural, whereas a much more heterogeneous pattern emerges when the QNP contains a singular/group noun. Air Jordan 10 Uomo Derrick Henry Jerseys Canotta Atlanta Hawks The empirical findings are argued to support an analysis in which the features involved in agreement are formally distinct from those marked morphologically on Q and N, which allows us to maintain a syntactic model of agreement even for apparent cases of “semantic agreement”.

Ion Giurgea On the evolution of articles into agreement markers in Romanian and Albanian

Abstract: This paper tries to elucidate the processes by which former determiners became preposed agreement markers in Romanian and Albanian.

  • Air Jordan 1 Homme
  • In both languages, these markers introduce genitives, agreeing possessors and ordinals. In Albanian the same forms are used as agreement prefixes on all old adjectives and participles and can precede cardinals in definite noun phrases. The fact that these items originate in definite determiners is proven not only by their forms, but also by the possibility of marking the matrix DP as definite when they occur in DP-initial position. adidas neo daily team męskie Canotte Dallas Mavericks Toronto Raptors I propose that the development definite determiner > agreement marker was made possible by the fact that these languages had specialized definite articles, a suffixal one and an independent, “strong” form which was used when suffixation was impossible.

  • It is the strong form which evolved into specialized agreement markers. nike

  • Ernie Banks Jersey Another necessary condition for the reanalysis was the possibility for the strong form to appear in postnominal position, which I assume to have been provided by double- or poly-definite constructions. Kirk Cousins Redskins Jerseys Canotta Boston Celtics For Romanian, I propose that the reanalysis of al was made possible by the fact that it had restricted contexts of occurrence. Maglie Chicago Bulls Kanken 7L Nike Air Max 2017 Heren wit For Albanian, where the strong forms must have also been used with adjectives, I adopt the view that a change in the unmarked adjective order from A-N to N-A was the main trigger of the reanalysis, starting from a stage in which postnominal adjectives could only appear in the double definiteness construction, where they were preceded by the article.

  • A further possibility, for Albanian, is the (morphologically triggered) confusion between the strong article and a relativizer stemming from IE *yo-/*y­ā-, used to introduce postnominal modifiers.

    Alexandru Mardale Romanian complex adnominal prepositional phrases. Nike Air Max 90 Dames Air Max Zero New Balance 446 damskie The example of de-phrases

    Abstract: Romanian displays two types of complex PPs (i.e. AJ 12 OVO PPs formed on at least two simple Ps), which may attach to Ns. asics gel lyte buty damskie The first one is headed by a combination of two (and very rarely three) lexical Ps, e. Asics Kinsei 4 damskie gel lyte 3 nike air max 2017 hombre g. de la ‘from’, pe sub ‘under’, pe lângă ‘near’, de pe lângă ‘from near’ (e.g. Adidas NMD Dames Maglie Golden State Warriors venirea lui de la Londra ‘his coming from London’). New Balance 1500 damskie The second type is headed by a combination of one functional P (de) and one lexical P, e. Nick Chubb – Georgia Bulldogs Jerseys g. Cleveland Cavaliers de la ‘from’, de pe ‘on’, de sub ‘under’, de lângă ‘near’ (e.g. air max damskie asics gel nimbus donna cartea de pe raft ‘the book on the shelf’). In this paper, we take a closer look at these two types of prepositional constructions. Adidas NMD Dames adidas trainer uomo blu nike femme First, we examine the various morpho-syntactic and semantic constraints under which the different constituents of the complex PPs may fall, e.g. the syntactic and semantic type of the matrix noun, the categorial status of the P’s complement (NP vs DP), and correlatively, the absence or presence of a determiner, their syntactic function (argument vs. Canotte Los Angeles Lakers modifier), their semantic interpretation (specific – non specific).

  • New Balance 1600 Donna
  • Second, we pay special attention to the analysis of de occurring in the second type of complex PPs.

  • Air Max 90 Flyknit
  • asics tiger donna In this respect, we show that complex PPs in type two are not genuine PPs and that de is not lexical, but the overt realisation of a functional category, namely, Mod(ifier).

    Antonio Fortin Constructions, pragmatics and modality

    Abstract:This paper rejects the commonplace view that the semantics of certain modal deverbal adjectives (MDAs), which have traditionally been assumed to be non-compositional, require complex lexical or syntactic encoding (cf. e.g. Riehemann 1994 and 1998, Booij 2007 and 2010a).

  • adidas superstar pas cher belgique Instead, it shows that productive MDA formation is semantically compositional, and that the prima facie idiosyncratic meanings are, in fact, conversational implicatures.

    Chariton Charitonidis On the denotational and socio-expressive properties of the Greek verbal derivatives in apo-, ek(s)-, and kse-

    Abstract:This paper deals with the semantic structure of the Greek verb prefixes apo-, ek(s)-, and kse- by focussing on their socio-expressive content. Canotta New York Knicks asics femme pas cher New Balance 420 damskie The patterns presented are the result of an empirical analysis of data extracted from language interviews conducted with 31 native Greek speakers in Athens, Greece in October 2010. Nike Zoom Goedkoop Lieber’s (2004, 2007) theoretical framework is used in the analysis. Cheap Nike Air Max UK The results suggest that apo- and kse- are similar both denotationally and socio-expressively, while ek(s)- shows up with an ambiguous structure. basket adidas homme yeezy air max 90 pas cher The interactional socio-expressive patterns make clear that no composition takes place between prefixes and bases but a discharging of the prefixal content onto a non-base argument. Positive socio-expressive clusters in the verbal roots promote the default negative content of the prefixes.

    Abstract: This paper focuses on examining how in his Etymologiae sive Origines Isidore of Seville makes use of the lexis that describes marvellous phenomena. Asics Gel lyte 3 Heren This lexis was borrowed to some extent from Solinus’ Collectanea rerum memorabilium.
