    In this paper I examine the text of a traditional Kashaya narrative which depicts a gambling game between coast and forest creatures. I propose an analysis of the meaning and organization of the text in terms of its cultural ...
  • The Reflexive Suffix -V In Hualapai 

    Sohn, Joong-Sun (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)
    Like many other languages Hualapai employs the reflexive suffix for several different grammatical purposes. Unlike them, however, constructions with a reflexive marker in Hualapai are usually not ambiguous with respect to ...
  • Point of View and Zibun: Toward a Unified Theory of the Japanese Reflexive 

    Yabushita, Katsuhiko (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)
    The predominant view of the binding facts of the Japanese reflexive zibun is that there are two types of uses; one is as a reflexive which is to be bound by the clause-mate subject, and the other one is as the so-called ...
  • A Descriptive Note on Malagasy Verbal Complementation and the Binding Hierarchy: With Special Reference to the Occurrence of the Complementizer fa 

    Nomura, Masuhiro (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)
    'the aim of the present paper is to describe verbal complementation in Malagasy and to consider how the Malagasy data reflect the binding hierarchy proposed by Givon (1980). It will be shown that the Malagasy data provide ...

    Li, Jen-i Jelina (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)

  • Syllable "Sonority" Hierarchy and Pulaar Stress: A Metrical Approach 

    Niang, Mamadou (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)
    "Syllable weight is usually viewed as a binary opposition…' (Hayes 1989) . That is, syllable weight distinctions are claimed to be at most binary: heavy vs light; bimoraic vs monomoraic. This paper argues that further ...
  • Gemination Processes: Motivation, Form and Constraints 

    Niang, Mamadou (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)
    Gemination in Pulaar, a dialect of Fula, does not always follow typically known gemination processes, and previous attempts to analyze Pulaar gemination processes (McIntosh 1985, Paradis 1992, Bakovic 1995) were unsatisfactory. ...
  • Korean "Tense" Consonants as Geminates 

    Choi, Dong-Ik (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 1995-01-01)
    In this paper, I argue that Korean "tense" consonants are geminates which occupy two C positions in a CV-tier. This argument is supported by phonetic evidence such as a longer closure duration of the tense consonants and ...
