Gurindji nasal cluster dissimilation as trigger deletion Juliet Stanton direct link: http://ling.auf.net/lingbuzz/004263 October 2018 Processes of unbounded spreading are often claimed to be myopic (e.g. Wilson 2003; McCarthy 2009): the ability of some feature [F] to spread from some segment

Hosono (2018) – Verb Movement in Narrow Syntax

Verb Movement in Narrow Syntax Mayumi Hosono direct link: http://ling.auf.net/lingbuzz/004262 October 2018 I argue that verb movement should be derived in narrow syntax. The derivational system of Labeling Algorithm proposed by Chomsky (2013, 2015) allows movement to occur in narrow

Hosono (2018) – Constraints on Movement

Constraints on Movement Mayumi Hosono direct link: http://ling.auf.net/lingbuzz/004261 June 2018 I argue, contra Chomsky (2013, 2015), that internal merge may not be free. It is shown that the Criterial Position (Rizzi 2006, 2010, 2015) is the position in which a

Morphology before phonology: A case study of Turoyo (Neo-Aramaic) Laura Kalin direct link: http://ling.auf.net/lingbuzz/004258 October 2018 Some models of the morphology-phonology interface take morphology and phonology to be computed in the same component of the grammar, simultaneously, e.g., “P»M” instantiations
