  • Integrating sound symbolism with core grammar: The case of expressive
           palatalization
    • Abstract: Some of the most robust patterns in phonology are found in sound-symbolic systems. The fixed sound sequences in phonesthemes, like English gl ‘vision, light’ (1a), have been found in several genetically and geographically distinct languages, and indeed in all languages where one has endeavored to look (Bergen 2004, Hinton et al. 1994b). Babytalk registers, or the specialized registers used with small children, are equally common and exhibit a host of recurring phonological patterns, including shape canons, cluster resolution, reduplication, and characteristic segmental alternations (Ferguson 1964, 1977). Ideophones and other kinds of sound-symbolic vocabularies may not be as prevalent in Indo-European languages ... Read More

  • Backgrounded agents in Catalan Sign Language (LSC): Passives, middles, or
           impersonals'
    • Abstract: Agent-backgrounding constructions have been studied extensively in the linguistic literature on spoken languages. The linguistic means of expressing agent backgrounding include a wide variety of strategies, from verbal marking as in passives (see e.g. Siewierska 1984; see also Keenan & Dryer 2007 and references cited there) and middles (Kemmer 1993) to nominal strategies such as dedicated human impersonal pronouns (Koenig 1999, Zifonun 2000), null pronouns in partial pro-drop languages (Cabredo Hofherr 2006, Holmberg 2005), impersonal uses of personal pronouns (Bolinger 1979, Kitagawa & Lehrer 1990, Yule 1982), and generalizing nouns (people/a person) (Siewierska 2008, 2011; see also Malamud 2012, and Gast & van ...

  • NP recursion over time: Evidence from Indo-European
    • Abstract: It has often been noted that languages vary in the extent to which they allow syntactic recursion, that is, the embedding of a phrase of some type within another phrase of the same type, such as [NP [NP my mother]’s book] (e.g. Givón 1979, Mithun 1984, 2010, Everett 2005, Heine & Kuteva 2007, Evans & Levinson 2009, Karlsson 2010, Pullum & Scholz 2010, Viti 2015). For example, Russian allows recursive embedding of NPs if they are marked with the genitive but not if they are constructed with an adjectivizer (an affix that lets an embedded NP behave like an adjective morphosyntactically).1 (1) Russian   Expansion by a second NP Ivanova or Ivana in 1b is not blocked by a universal ...

  • The multifunctionality of ‘possible’ modal adverbs: A
           comparative look
    • Abstract: The investigation of modal structuring in language is a venerable tradition dating back many years, but recent years have also seen its popularity rise through the use of interdisciplinary approaches, mainly sparked by research on discourse markers, grammaticalization, and (inter)subjectification. It has also enjoyed the limelight particularly in cognitive linguistics, corpus linguistics, and functional linguistics. English has various ways of expressing modality, and one of the primary lexical markers of modality is the modal adverb. This adverbial category comprises a wealth of items, classified into ‘certain’, ‘probable’, and ‘possible’ levels of meaning (Lyons 1977:800, Halliday & Matthiessen 2014:179–80). In ... Read More

  • Result verbs, scalar change, and the typology of motion verbs
    • Abstract: ‘result’ in lexical semantics. The set of attested verb meanings in any language is a small subset of the meanings that could conceivably be lexicalized by verbs. Whether this set is constrained, at least in part, by the nature of grammar is a long-standing question in the study of syntax and semantics, going back at least to the days of generative semantics. Following in this tradition, a considerable body of recent work aims to pin at least some of the restriction on possible verb meanings on the nature of a verb’s ‘event structure’, a level of representation associated (lexically or syntactically) with a surface verb that is meant to figure into generalizations about its argument-realizational and ...

    • Abstract: Despite the fact that the analysis of nominals has for a long time received a certain amount of attention (e.g. Chomsky 1970, Grimshaw 1990), argument realization and case assignment in the nominal domain have been primarily viewed through the lens of verbal syntax. Here we analyze nominals on their own terms, proposing a lexicalist, constraint-based approach to case assignment in Russian nominals, couched within the simpler syntax framework (Culicover & Jackendoff 2005). We pay attention predominantly to process nominals that are morphologically related to verbs. The semantic argument structure of these nominals is essentially the same as that of their cognate verbs, even when their syntactic argument ... Read More

  • The making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Peter Gilliver (review)
    • Abstract: Peter Gilliver’s book on the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) traces the genesis of the OED and its history over the next century and a half. This work is erudite, massively learned, and meticulously documented and, by some magic instilled into it, both informative and entertaining. The reader will come away with a greatly enhanced respect for the OED and all its manifold excellences and perceived faults, and those of its many successors, having seen in detail the human effort, skill, sacrifice, drama, and the relentless drive for excellence that have gone into its pages since its official inception at the Philological Society in 1857. The book traces the history of this ground-breaking dictionary ... Read More

  • Language vitality: The weak theoretical underpinnings of what can be an
           exciting research area
    • Abstract: While terms such as language endangerment, endangered languages, language loss, or language death have typically been used with regard to the subject of language vitality, I have deliberately avoided them in the title of this article because they omit the big picture, viz., the coexistence of languages in particular polities and how the competition that sometimes arises is resolved. If we linguists hope to theorize about language endangerment and loss adequately,1 we must also understand the other side of the overall picture, viz., the maintenance and at times expansion of some varieties into major languages. I have chosen to use the term vitality because it appears to be the umbrella term most suitable for ... Read More

  • On how and why languages become endangered: Reply to Mufwene
    • Abstract: Salikoko Mufwene (2017) raises significant questions about how and why languages become endangered (and die). The purpose of this reply is to provide additional perspective on what goes into answering these questions, responding to some claims in Mufwene’s article. Mufwene’s title, ‘Language vitality: The weak theoretical underpinnings of what can be an exciting research area’, suggests that something is wrong, though Mufwene offers no substantive proposals to address what he sees as the problem and mentions only a few of the factors that can contribute to language loss. Rather, he calls for ‘theorizing about language vitality more adequately than has been the case to date’ (p. e204). A footnote ... Read More

  • The vitality or endangerment of some nonindigenous languages: A response
           to Mufwene
    • Abstract: For various reasons, some of which are addressed here, it is often assumed that the field of language endangerment and loss (LEL) is concerned predominantly with indigenous languages. Salikoko Mufwene (2017) raises a series of interesting issues for the field, chief among which is the observation that the discourse leaves out ‘nonindigenous’ populations, such as in the ‘European settlement colonies’, ‘Bantu settled territories’, and ‘plantation settlement colonies’ (pp. e212–e213). This raises the noteworthy question of whether there is an overreliance on the terminology ‘indigenous’ among those engaged in LEL, and whether the conversation can and should include nonindigenous languages. In particular, I ... Read More

  • Language vitality: Theorizing language loss, shift, and reclamation
           (Response to Mufwene)
    • Abstract: Salikoko Mufwene’s (2017) ‘Language vitality: The weak theoretical underpinnings of what can be an exciting research area’ is a rich and thought-provoking position paper with much to discuss. Topics range across the use of endangered language data in mainstream historical linguistics, parallels between language and species endangerment (or rather parallels in the study of ecology and language endangerment and loss (LEL)), why languages become endangered, linguists’ ‘investment in language advocacy’ (p. e203), and the use of the term ‘indigenous’ as a focus for LEL advocates. At the core, Mufwene argues that the LEL literature has focused too heavily on a particular type of community and language endangerment ... Read More

           Mufwene
    • Abstract: Mufwene (2017) addresses a number of concerns that have been of significant interest to us in our own recent work, and we are grateful for the opportunity that his provocative analysis provides for further consideration of the ways that language endangerment and loss (LEL) has been examined in the field. Our comments here are informed by our work in the Lower Fungom region of Cameroon (see Di Carlo 2011, Good et al. 2011), a rural area of West Africa characterized by extraordinary language diversity and high degrees of individual multilingualism. When looked at from the point of view of global patterns of language shift, Lower Fungom is remarkable for the vitality of its languages. The region is about ... Read More

  • How far can the language ecology metaphor take us': A Pacific
           perspective on language vitality (Response to Mufwene)
    • Abstract: The use of the ecology metaphor in linguistics is generally traced to Haugen (1972:325), who defined the ecology of language as ‘the study of interactions between any given language and its environment’, with ‘environment’ glossed as the society in which the language is used. This definition opened up a relatively broad and interdisciplinary line of enquiry, but it was not until the early 1990s that the terms ‘linguistic ecology’ and ‘ecology of language’ began to be used with any frequency (Chen 2016). Foregrounding the environment, or society, in which languages are spoken has helped shift the focus to the phenomenon of linguistic diversity as something more than the presence of multiple languages, highlighting ...

  • African(ist) perspectives on vitality: Fluidity, small speaker numbers,
           
    • Abstract: For this Africanist, perhaps the most important message of Mufwene’s (2017) article is the one that ‘language ecosystems of different polities are not identical’ (p. e219), flanked by his pertinent observation that ‘language activists have been more interested in correcting evolution than in seeking to understand it from a historical and comparative perspective’ (p. e208). These points constitute a forceful invitation to develop the situated study of language ecologies and to approach linguistic settings not exclusively with a perspective on particular languages, nor on their endangerment or vitality. This research involves approaching ecologies as constellations where imaginary reified representations of ... Read More

  • Understanding language vitality and reclamation as resilience: A framework
           for language endangerment and ‘loss’ (Commentary on Mufwene)
    • Abstract: Mufwene (2017) focuses on language endangerment and loss (LEL), arguing that ‘theoretical developments regarding language vitality lag far behind linguists’ current investment in language advocacy’ (p. e203) and outlining a set of factors that cause the shift and loss. In a valuable and timely way, Mufwene assesses the field regarding knowledge and theories of language endangerment. His target article and the various responses in this volume have the potential to frame research questions and agendas over the next decade. However, in my response, I counter some of his statements with arguments that there are, in fact, numerous linguists and grassroots scholars theorizing on language vitality and doing so in ...

  • On the role of agency, marginalization, multilingualism, and language
           policy in maintaining language vitality: Commentary on Mufwene
    • Abstract: The premise of Mufwene’s (2017) insightful and thought-provoking article is the observation that there is in the field a scarcity of documentation about how language endangerment and loss historically impacted different cultures before the colonization of the Americas, Australia, Africa, and other parts of the world. He notes that the focus has been on indigenous cultures in those regions of the world and much less on what has happened in Europe and cultures of European descent. As a result of this discrepancy, Mufwene proposes to shift our attention away from language revitalization proper to examining how small languages can survive and thrive when they coexist with large, dominant languages. In other words, in ... Read More

  • It’s still worth theorizing on LEL, despite the heterogeneity and
           complexity of the processes (Response to commentators)
    • Abstract: I am grateful for the generally thought-provoking commentaries on my target article (Mufwene 2017), which reveal how multifaceted and complex the subject matter of language endangerment and loss (LEL) is. They also show how difficult it is to develop a position that addresses all of the issues. Because of space limitations, my responses focus on the most critical ones. The respondents fall into three groups: (1) those who have worked on LEL mostly in former settlement colonies, viz., Lyle Campbell, Claire Bowern, and Colleen Fitzgerald; (2) those who have investigated them in former exploitation colonies, viz., Pierpaolo Di Carlo & Jeff Good, Friederike Lüpke, and Fiona Willans & Anthony Jukes; and (3) ...

  • Phonological conditions on variable adjective and noun word order in
           Tagalog
    • Abstract: The order of adjective and noun in Tagalog is traditionally described as freely variable. Both orders—prenominal adjective (1a; we call this adjective + noun) or postnominal adjective (1b; noun + adjective)—are claimed to be possible and semantically interchangeable, ‘without any apparent difference in meaning’ (Schachter & Otanes 1972:121). (1)   Despite the general claims of free order and semantic interchangeability, some have put forth hypotheses about the conditioning of order variation. Schachter and Otanes (1972; hereafter S&O) point to pragmatic and semantic factors, such as givenness or adjective semantic class, which, they observed, tend to prefer one order over another.

  • All dissimilation is computationally subsequential
    • Abstract: Dissimilation, wherein two sounds in a word become less similar to one another (or the avoidance of similar sounds in a word is observed), is a well-attested phonological process both synchronically and diachronically (Suzuki 1998, Bennett 2013). Although it may be seen as the counterpart to assimilation, dissimilatory processes are often nonlocal and may involve segments that block the dissimilation. Thus, if one were to look for a computationally ‘complex’ pattern in phonology, long-distance dissimilation would be a good candidate, since complexity is often tied to locality. This article establishes that the dissimilation patterns of the world’s languages are computationally less complex than previously ... Read More

  • What the F: What swearing reveals about our language, our brains, and

    • Abstract: I teach an undergraduate course on swear words and taboo language designed to interest students in the study of language and introduce the field of linguistics to nonmajors. As a result, I have looked on with interest over the past few years at the spike in the number of published books devoted to the topic of taboo language (alternatively called swearing, profanity, cursing, or obscenity in the literature; see Adams 2016, Green 2014, Mohr 2013, to name a few). Cognitive scientist Benjamin K. Bergen’s latest offering What the F: What swearing reveals about our language, our brains, and ourselves is a valuable contribution to this growing library. B’s book emerges from the following basic premise: because ... Read More

  • Phonological acquisition: Child language and constraint-based grammar by
           Anne-Michelle Tessier (review)
    • Abstract: This book has clearly been written by someone who researches, teaches, and loves phonological acquisition. There are many audiences who are interested in child speech: linguists, clinicians, teachers, psychologists, and so forth. Each audience presents its own challenges, of course. Tessier has succeeded in producing a book that will fit into the undergraduate linguistics curriculum because it seeks to both describe and explain (in the Chomskyan sense) the developmental paths and patterns of child phonological acquisition. T also ensures that the book is well grounded in phonological theory, which is important for two reasons. One is that any account of language acquisition depends on the model of what is being ...
