  • Do Mass Nouns Constitute a Semantically Uniform Class? 

    Nicolas, David (University of Kansas. Linguisitcs Graduate Student Association, 2002-01-01)
    Research on mass nouns has focused on concrete terms. So, are there semantic properties shared by all mass terms? We first consider concrete nouns like milk and furniture. Contra Cheng (1973), we show that they can be held ...
  • Acoustic and Perceptual Evidence of Complete Neutralization of Word-Final Tonal Specification in Japanese 

    Maniwa, Kazumi (University of Kansas. Linguisitcs Graduate Student Association, 2002-01-01)
    This study investigated the extent to which the Japanese lexical pitch-accent distinction is neutralized in word-final position. Native speakers of Tokyo Japanese produced minimal word pairs differing in final accent status. ...
  • Effects of Context Fo Range in Perception and Production of a Lexical, Tonal Distinction

  • The Acquisition of Mayan Morphosyntax 

    Pye, Clifton (University of Kansas. Linguisitcs Graduate Student Association, 2002-01-01)
    This paper assesses predictions for the acquisition of Mayan verbal inflections derived from structural, comparative and metrical theories. The structuralist theory of Wexler (1998) fails to predict K'iche' (Kiche) ...
  • Mayan Morphosyntax 

    Pye, Clifton (University of Kansas. Linguisitcs Graduate Student Association, 2002-01-01)
    This paper uses data from the Mayan languages to evaluate expanded [NFL theories derived from the work of Pollock (1989) and Chomsky (1995). The combination of ergative agreement with subject agreement closer to the verb ...
