Markedness And Morphotactics In Kadiwéu [+participant] Agreement
Morphology. , v. 21, n. 2, p. 351 - 378, 2011.
We examine the realization of subject and object agreement in Kadiwéu, where there is only one prefixal position, and neither subject nor object can consistently be said to win-rather, the person and number of the arguments matters. We argue for an analysis in terms of the markedness of the 1st person compared to the second, dispreferring 1st person realization. This analysis is complicated by the fact that 1st person plural does in fact win over 2nd person, but only when it is an object. This turns out to be a consequence of the fact that the 1st plural object prefix is a portmanteau fusing person and number. The properties of the exponent inventory, combined with the morphological resources of Kadiwéu (understood here in terms of Trommer's (2008) Coherence constraints) and its independent need for inverse marking thus conspire to yield the particular set of argument realization combinations. We argue that factoring out the analysis into feature-sensitive realization of the feature [+participant] and [+plural], dispreferred realization of marked [+author], and these morphotactic coherence constraints, provides a better analysis of crosslinguistic variation and language-internal facts than positing an autonomous language-specific hierarchy to encode the facts. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.212351378Anderson, S., (1992) A-Morphous Morphology, , Cambridge: Cambridge University PressBeavers, J., (2006) Argument/Oblique alternations and the structure of lexical meaning, , Doctoral dissertation, Stanford UniversityBéjar, S., Rezac, M., Cyclic agree (2009) Linguistic Inquiry, 40 (1), pp. 35-73Bobaljik, J., Branigan, P., Eccentric agreement and multiple case-checking (2006) Ergativity: Emerging Issues, pp. 47-77. , A.
