  • Martin Vigo, Eugenio (2012-12)
    This paper attempts to give an account of the syntax of quotation from an LFG perspective. I claim that quotes are inserted at N’ positions by making use of a special phrase structure rule that makes the quote’s f-structure ...
  • Yang, Fengrong (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2019-11-13)
    In this dissertation we propose a new mapping theory within the OT-LFG framework to account for the fact that in Catalan and other Romance languages, the direct argument of intransitive verbs (whether unaccusative or ...

    After a brief outline of the principal episodes in the external history, the chapter surveys the principal aspects of phonology, orthography, morphology and syntax of Catalan and its principal dialects (spoken in Catalonia, ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Yang, Fengrong (CSLI Publications, 2018)
    The goal of this paper is to analyze the behavior of the single direct argument of intransitive verbs in Catalan, including its encoding as a grammatical function, verbal agreement, case assignment, and expression by means ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Yang, Fengrong (CSLI Publications, 2019)
    This paper aims to present a theory of expletives1 in English within LFG in which the distribution of expletives follows from general principles and from the lexical entries of the relevant expletives. Consequently, ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Vigo, Eugenio M. (CSLI Publications, 2014)
    In this paper we analyze the phenomenon of copular inversion (CI) in Catalan, which consists in the copula not agreeing with its subject but with its complement. We claim this is due to the idea that in CI-languages verbs ...
  • Vigo, Eugenio M. (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2016-10-03)
    In this thesis I propose an explanation for the facts of copular inversion in Spanish, Catalan, and other Romance languages, as well as in German. Copular inversion is a phenomenon found in some languages, in which, at ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2023)
    The treatment of inflectional periphrasis is problematic in LFG, apparently because of the lexicalist nature of the framework. A close inspection of what is usually understood by lexicalism reveals two distinct, but ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Vigo, Eugenio M. (CSLI Publications, 2017)
    The goal of this paper is to explain verbal agreement in Plains Cree (Algonquian), in which verb forms always agree with the most prominent argument with respect to person and other referential features, but adopt either ...

  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2020)
    In the Romance language Catalan, some verbs and some argument-structure configurations normally require the reflexive clitic; however, in certain constructions, the expected reflexive clitic is optionally missing; and, ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2023)
    Valency-changing morphemes, in those languages that allow more than one in the same word, show ordering restrictions and effects of syntactic and semantic scope. In some languages, a given pair of valency-changing morphemes ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2022)
    This paper claims that the relationship between morphology and syntax is multidirectional. It argues against the generally accepted position in LFG that word formation feeds the syntax and that syntax cannot feed word ...
