The Argument Structure of Morphological Causatives. guage-particularly, problems which in themselves call into question the grammati-cal-relation-based account of ‘causative displacement’ embodied in Table 1, what-ever the adequacy of the formulation given in. The book critically evaluates previous proposals from both syntactic and semantic perspectives and presents a new analysis incorporating many recent developments in generative linguistic : Emily Manetta.
This text examines the structural similarities of causatives between languages and the pragmatic foundations of causatives. A wide range of languages are considered, taken from a database of over languages, offering an international approach to causative construction.
On the basis of the argument realization of Mandarin resultative verb compounds, this paper argues that the Proto-Agent properties as well as the Proto-Patient properties proposed by Dowty () are not equal in status.
Specifically, the Proto-Agent property corresponding to the Causer and the Proto-Patient property corresponding to the Causee are two higher-ranked properties. There are three types of causatives are identified in natural languages. They are—morphological causatives, lexical causatives and periphrastic causatives.
This study mainly focuses on resolving the issues related to the translation of English periphrastic causative sentences with the auxiliary verbs ‘have’, ‘get’, and ‘make’ into. causative data and give a succinct Optimality-theoretic analysis of morphological causatives.
Section 4 highlights the inadequacies posed by a word-based approach to causatives (section ) and argues for a root-based approach as an alternative (section ). In section 5, the issue of the status of vowels in MA roots is addressed.
Webcat Plus: Morphological theory: an introduction to word structure in generative grammar, This is the first near--exhaustive introduction to the burgeoning field of morphology in generative grammar.
Presupposing very little prior knowledge of linguistics, the book guides the reader from absolute basics to the most recent theoretical developments. There have been essentially two types of theoretical approaches to account for the grammatical relations associated with the causee argument of causative constructions.
Ignoring the specifics of particular theories, there are transitivity based approaches in which the causee is a direct object when the embedded clause is intransitive, and an indirect object or oblique when the embedded clause.

Japanese causatives must be treated as single verbal forms with complex morpholog-ical structure. The causative morpheme should not be treated as a higher predicate as it is in most transformational/GB analyses (following Kuroda ()), and in Gunji (this volume).
1This paper has had a long gestation. Initial arguments for a lexicalist. Chapter 8 distinguishes periphrastic, lexical and morphological causatives. The question of the grammatical relation of the causee in causatives derived from transitive verbs leads to a discussion of Baker's theory.
The question of the grammatical relation of the causee in causatives derived from. This results in an enormous simplification of the grammar. A transformational model of Hindi causatives (Kachru; Klei- man ) expresses semantic generalizations in terms of actual derivations; and as a result, it cannot incorporate the notion of semantic gaps.
Such an analysis fails to be explanatory for two reasons. The fifth volume in the VARGReB series is a monograph presenting a collection of studies on middle-voice grams in Baltic, that is, on a widely ramified family of constructions with different syntactic and semantic properties but sharing a morphological marker of reflexive origin.
Transformational grammar, also called Transformational-generative Grammar, a system of language analysis that recognizes the relationship among the various elements of a sentence and among the possible sentences of a language and uses processes or rules (some of which are called transformations) to express these relationships.
For example, transformational grammar relates the active sentence. depth. Hook and Koul () present the Kashmiri morphological causatives in significant detail. Though they offer no formal analysis of Kashmiri causatives beyond refuting a lexicalist approach, their careful empirical work began a series of discussions on how Kashmiri causation should be.
Typology of Morphological Causatives A Syntactic Account Jinwoo Jo ([email protected]) & Mai Ha Vu ([email protected]) Dept. of Linguistics and Cognitive Science, University of Delaware Abstract: This poster discusses the typology of causatives focusing on the different strategies of deriving “morphologi- cal causatives” (Comrie ) in Hungarian, Japanese, and Korean.
J iO Periphrastic causatives All periphrastic causatives are potentially more `indirect' than morphological causatives.
As we have seen (cf. sections a. i and ii above), morphological ca_usattveare subject to temporal, spatial, and manner restrictions (i.e. upon how closely the cause Z must be involved with the causative action) which. Causatives In Minimalism Causatives In Minimalism by Mercedes Tubino Blanco.

In particular, this book studies in-depth the extent to which variation in the expression of causation, available both intra- and crosslinguistically, can be accounted for.
A number of theoretical issues are also discussed. Chapter 1, 'Introduction' (), is a perfunctory review of the notions of grammar, theory of grammar, competence, performance etc. Chapter 5, 'Aspects of a theory of grammar' (), concerns rule ordering, the cycle, restrictions on transformational power, and the interface of syntax and.
“The morphological causatives are productively derived from all verbs of Classes 1, 2, and 4 and are marked by a causative suffix or a combination of two causative suffixes. As to Class 3, its members rarely have morphological causatives of this type, though many of.

Specific analyses differ as to the exact nature of the underlying main verb (either an abstract marker, under most versions of the analysis, or the causative morpheme itself (Baker.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. x + pp. These are: 1) lexical causatives, in which the two events are expressed in a single lexical item, as in the well-discussed case of English kill; 2) morphological causatives, in which the causing event and the caused event are encoded in a single verbal complex via causative morphology, and, prototypically, morphological marking showing the.
Introduction. While English has many different forms of causatives, such as lexical causatives (rise vs. raise) syntactical causatives (fall vs. make fall) and ambitransitive causatives (the chocolate melted vs.I melted the chocolate), Nahuatl primary uses the inflectional suffix -tia or -ltia to indicate the causative construction.
Typically, intransitives attach the inflectional suffix -tia.Linguistics - Linguistics - Transformational-generative grammar: The most significant development in linguistic theory and research in the 20th century was the rise of generative grammar, and, more especially, of transformational-generative grammar, or transformational grammar, as it came to be known.
Two versions of transformational grammar were put forward in the mids, the first by.morphological patterns in human language and elucidating broad issues that are the foundation upon which morphological theories are built.
At the same time, the material in this book has been substantially restructured and some topics have been expanded. The goal was to bring foundational issues to the forefront.
