  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Vigo, Eugenio M. (CSLI Publications, 2017)
    The goal of this paper is to describe verbal agreement in languages like Icelandic in which the finite verb agrees with the nominative SUBJ, if there is one; otherwise, it agrees with a nominative OBJ; otherwise, it shows ...
  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    This paper argues for the claim that the definite article (d-article) in Catalan is a bound morpheme that adds its information about grammatical category to that of the host it forms a compound with. In this way, ...

    Evidence is reviewed that requires abandoning verb-preposition reanalysis in the derivation of prepositional passives (P-passives). An alternative is proposed in which P-passives are a type of raising construction, where ...
