  • From Reflexive to Passive 

    Sohn, Joong-Sun (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1998-01-01)
    Previous approaches to the passive development from a reflexive marking focus on how the former is similar to the latter semantically and syntactically. I show that the passive evolution is better understood by looking at ...

  • The English Middle and Inchoative 

    Sohn, Joong-Sun (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1998-01-01)
