  • Verb Agreement and the Structure of the Clause in Karaja 

    Maia, Marcus (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    In this paper, we discuss the subject and object agreement systems in Karaja, a Brazilian indigenous language of the Macro-Je stock, with relation to the Feature Specification Constraint (FSC) proposed by Murasugi, 94. We ...
  • Obviation Across Clause Boundaries in Kutenai 

    Dryer, Matthew S. (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    Kutenai has an obviation system reminiscent of the system found in Algonquian languages in which at most one third person nominal in a clause is proximate and others are obviative. Although the behaviour of proximate ...
  • Unitariness and Partial Identification in the Bella Coola Middle Voice 

    Beck, David (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    The Bella Coola suffix -m has been analyzed in the literature as two or even three separate morphemes, based on the variable effects it has on the transitivity of its base. In this paper, I argue for -m as a single morpheme ...
  • Reduplicated Numeral in Salish 

    Anderson, Gregory D. S. (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
  • Syllable Structure and External Evidence 

    Berardo, Marcellino (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    To determine what psycholinguistic evidence (or external evidence) such as slips of the tongue, monosyllabic word blends, and novel word games reveals about syllable structure, this investigation focuses on psycholinguistic ...
  • Against IP-adjunction scrambling 

    Yamada, Makoto (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    As an optional movement, "scrambling" in Japanese has been one of the major obstacles to the Minimalist program, in which movements occur only when necessary. Miyagawa (1996), in his attempt to accommodate this phenomena ...
  • Functional Projections and Event Structure 

    Khym, Hangyoo; Kookiattikoon, Supath (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    The variable behavior verbs in unaccusative/unergative alternation in Dutch, Italian, and Hebrew led Borer(1993) to deny the "lexical-entrydriven approach. Following Van Valin(1990), she concludes that the unaccusative/unergative ...
  • Binding Principle for Long-distance Anaphors 

    Choi, Dong-Ik (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    This paper deals with long-distance anaphora, a binding phenomenon in which reflexives find their antecedents outside their local domain. I introduce various syntactic approaches to the phenomenon: Binding-domain parametrizing ...
  • Constraints on Noun Incorporation in Korean 

    Khym, Hangyoo (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    In this paper I discuss noun incorporation phenomena in Korean. I will show that noun incorporation of Korean occurs at D-structure and obeys the Head Movement Constraint (HMC) by Travis (1984) and Chomsky (1986) syntactically ...
  • Multiple subject constructions in Korean: A Functional Explanation 

    Jang, Youngjun (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    This paper investigates the distribution and the nature of the so-called multiple subject constructions in Korean from the perspective of the functional syntax (Kuno (1987)). The major proposal of this paper is that multiple ...
  • Two Properties of the Intransitive Resultative Construction 

    Miyamoto, Yoichi (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1997-01-01)
    This paper argues that the intransitive resultative construction requires head-movement of the secondary predicate to the main predicate in order to assign the theta-role to the postverbal NP in LF. Then, this construction ...
