  • Intersecting constraint families: An argument for harmonic grammar
    • Abstract: A key debate in constraint-based linguistic frameworks concerns ranking versus weighting. Optimality theory (OT; Prince & Smolensky 2004 [1993]) uses strict ranking: candidate A is preferred to candidate B if the highest-ranked constraint that distinguishes between them prefers A. In harmonic grammar (Legendre et al. 1990, Legendre et al. 2006, Potts et al. 2010, and others), the constraints bear numeric weights, and the winner is the candidate with the best harmony value (a weighted sum of constraint violations). In both approaches there are ways, discussed below, of elaborating the core ideas to assign probability distributions to outputs, rather than predicting a single winner. Such grammars can be ...

  • Active dependency formation in islands: How grammatical resumption affects
           sentence processing
    • Abstract: Over the years, numerous psycholinguistic studies have examined the on-line formation of long-distance dependencies, also referred to as filler-gap dependencies. Long-distance dependencies, which are predominantly manifested in wh-questions (1) and relative clauses (2), are characterized by an association between a constituent that appears to be displaced (the filler, in bold in 1–2) and its canonical site (the gap, the underscore in 1–2). This type of dependency can span multiple clause boundaries and is thus, in principle, unbounded. (1) Which student was the teacher waiting for __ ' (2) The doctor who the secretary was trying to call __ had lost his suitcase. Since the gap site is ... Read More

  • Informativity and the actuation of lenition
    • Abstract: Different languages lenite (voice, spirantize, approximate, debuccalize, or delete)1 different sounds in word-final positions. American English variably lenites /t/ word-finally (Kahn 1976, Zue & Laferriere 1979), varieties of Spanish variably lenite /s/ word-finally (e.g. Poplack 1980, Hochberg 1986, Fox 2001), and Indonesian lenites /k/ word-finally (Soderberg & Olson 2008). English, Indonesian, and Spanish all allow /s/, /t/, and /k/ word-finally; why is it that each one preferentially lenites a different final segment' More generally, is it possible to predict which segments are most vulnerable to lenition within a given language' Answering this question can provide a partial answer to the famous actuation ...

  • The medium-term dynamics of accents on reality television
    • Abstract: Two of the most striking aspects of language are stability and change. Both aspects are especially clear for how sounds are pronounced, the focus of this article. At the level of individuals, we intuitively know that a speaker’s accent can shift as a function of her interlocutor, and that some people’s accents seem to shift permanently (accent change), for example, after moving to a new dialect region. However, we also intuitively know that many people’s accents are stable over time: this default assumption underlies our ability to identify where someone is from by their accent. At the level of speech communities, many aspects of the phonetic and phonological system are stable at a given point in time, yet cases ... Read More

  • Influence of predicate sense on word order in sign languages: Intensional
           and extensional verbs
    • Abstract: The work described here explores the relationship between verb meaning and word order in sign languages. Specifically, we consider the possibility that word order in sign languages, as exemplified by Brazilian Sign Language (Libras), is sensitive to the difference between extensional and intensional verbs. A given language is frequently expected to have a basic way of ordering the subject (S) and object (O) in relation to each other and to the verb (V). Basic word orders are often unambiguously claimed for particular languages (as in the seminal work of Greenberg 1963 and much work thereafter). Languages that use morphological markers to indicate the grammatical functions of the participants in an action ... Read More

Our main research question is this: To what extent do information-structure-related word-order alternations reflect an inherent connection between information structure and word order (the word-order hypothesis), and to what extent do they merely help to fulfill independent prosodic requirements (the prosodic hypothesis)' The word-order hypothesis is incarnated in generalizations like ‘Foci are sentence-final’, ‘Topics are sentence-initial’, or ‘Discourse-given expressions precede new ones’. The prosodic hypothesis relies on generalizations like ‘Focus realizes nuclear stress’, ‘Topic realizes prenuclear ... Read More

  • Edible gender, mother-in-law style, & other grammatical wonders: Studies
           in Dyirbal, Yidiñ, & Warrgamay by R. M. W. Dixon (review)
    • Abstract: ‘A language is a social phenomenon’, Dixon states at the beginning of this book. Merely looking at the structure of a language, he explains, is not a helpful tactic in attempting to understand the principles of linguistic features; a semantic approach, he sets out to demonstrate, might be much more fruitful. It is precisely this perspective on linguistics that is at the core of this inspiring book. The studies on Dyirbal, Yidiñ, and Warrgamay, three languages of north-eastern Australia, that are presented in the volume are all about meaning—how speakers make meaning, how grammatical features represent meaningful social and cultural practice, how meaning changes, and how it is always there, in multiple ways. ...

  • Signing and belonging in Nepal by Erika Hoffmann-Dilloway (review)
    • Abstract: Signing and belonging in Nepal is a touching and authentic reflection on the often-unexpected nuance in the ways deaf people work within particular cultural milieus to find one another, organize, and advocate for their unique status as a community. Hoffmann-Dilloway’s longitudinal perspective reminds us of the powerful factors referencing and reinforcing personhood. In Nepal, these factors include language paradigms, language use, and hierarchical social organization based on religion, gender, lineage, and how these features converge as jāts—something the author describes as a ‘vast concept’ commonly translated as ‘castes’. Importantly, readers are reminded not only of the powerful impact of cultural ... Read More

  • Compositional semantics: An introduction to the syntax/semantics interface
           by Pauline Jacobson (review)
    • Abstract: Pauline Jacobson’s Compositional semantics is a comprehensive introduction to formal semantics with a focus on those phenomena with the greatest potential to elucidate the interplay between syntax and semantics in natural language meaning. Let me emphasize the adjective comprehensive. This book contains nineteen substantive chapters covering everything from Semantics I staples like generalized quantifiers and scope ambiguities to negative polarity items, focus semantics, and a host of binding phenomena like weak crossover and donkey pronouns. Though broad in this way, the book is laudably modular and so could be used in a variety of courses focused at a graduate or upper-division undergraduate level. My ... Read More

  • The Oxford handbook of derivational morphology ed. by Rochelle Lieber,
           Pavol Štekauer (review)
    • Abstract: This handbook is the second in a series of four Oxford University Press handbooks on morphology, of which one, also edited by Lieber and Štekauer (2009), deals with compounding, one with inflection (edited by Matthew Baerman, 2015), and a fourth one (to appear in 2017) with morphological theory (edited by Jenny Audring and Francesca Masini). The book is divided into two parts. The first part deals with a number of concepts and issues in the analysis of derivation (understood as all types of word formation minus compounding) and contains a number of chapters on the various types of formal processes involved in derivation (twenty-four chapters in total). Part II consists of fifteen chapters on word formation ... Read More

  • Contiguity theory by Norvin Richards (review)
    • Abstract: This book can only be described as a tour de force. In Contiguity theory, Norvin Richards juggles a mind-boggling amount of data from a diverse variety of languages and develops a complex theoretical framework with far-reaching implications for the theory of grammar. The result is by no means an easy read: the theory is elaborate and unconventional, and fully appreciating the dense discussion requires proficiency in syntactic and phonological theory. R’s point of departure is the observation that current syntactic theory ‘offers no real answer to the question of why … movements are distributed as they are among languages’ (1). He rejects the common practice of invoking formal features as ... Read More

  • Computational models of referring: A study in cognitive science by Kees
           van Deemter (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, Kees van Deemter provides a wide-ranging synthesis of work from computational linguistics on the natural language generation of referring expressions. vD has been a leading member of a highly productive research community focused on empirical and computational approaches to referring expression generation (REG). Here, he places these efforts into a comprehensive theoretical and historical context, outlining a range of issues and questions important to the development of algorithms for reference generation and providing a guide for where such work is likely to go in the future. In the preface, vD characterizes reference as the ‘fruit fly’ of the study of language, given all the ways that ... Read More

  • Stylistic fronting in Old Italian: A phase-based analysis
    • Abstract: In this article I focus on stylistic fronting (SF) in Old Italian (OI) and argue that this syntactic phenomenon results from CP and vP phase properties. SF is movement to information structure and has a specific pragmatic function that explains its complementary distribution with clausal subjects of predication. SF has been extensively discussed in the linguistic literature, although a unitary analysis and clear-cut definition are missing. It is still controversial whether SF productivity in a grammar depends on certain parametric properties rather than others, specifically on the presence of systematic V-to-C movement, which also characterizes OI among other Medieval Romance languages. The name ‘SF’ ... Read More

  • The change in the position of the verb in the history of Portuguese:
           Subject realization, clitic placement, and prosody
    • Abstract: In this article, we describe the change in subject position and clitic placement in the history of Portuguese between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, based on data extracted from sixteen syntactically annotated texts from the Tycho Brahe corpus,1 written by Portuguese authors born between 1502 and 1836. We propose that the change from Classical to Modern European Portuguese may be interpreted as the loss of the movement of the verb to a position in the left periphery of the sentence that, following tradition, we take to be C(omp). Such a movement is reminiscent of the movement observed in verb-second (‘V2’) grammars, but with the important difference that the V2 linear order is not always derived. Our ... Read More

  • What does incipient /ay/-raising look like': A response to Josef
           Fruehwald
    • Abstract: Canadian raising—wherein the diphthongs /ay/ and /aw/ surface as /ʌy/ and /ʌw/ before voiceless consonants—has been a topic of linguistic interest since at least 1942, when Martin Joos published ‘A phonological dilemma in Canadian English’ in the eighteenth volume of Language (Joos 1942). In the intervening years many others have written about raising—in Canada and elsewhere, and in this journal and elsewhere—in part because of the following facts. Raising occurs before a voiceless consonant, so words with voiceless codas like write and knife are produced with the raised [ʌy], while those with voiced codas like ride and knives have the lower variant, [ay]. It also occurs before a flapped /t/, however, such ... Read More

  • Response to Berkson, Davis, & Strickler, ‘What does incipient
           /ay/-raising look like'’
    • Abstract: The documentation of incipient /ay/-raising in Berkson, Davis, & Strickler 2017 (henceforth BD&S) is an excellent example of the importance of carefully curated data collected in just the right place at just the right time. I believe that combining their results with the analysis of the time course of /ay/-raising in Philadelphia reinforces a point made in Fruehwald 2017: the best way to learn about how language changes is to examine language change in progress. In fact, in order to fully understand something like the actuation problem, it may be necessary to adopt a nearly epidemiological survey approach, studying a speech community continuously, starting before it is clear that a change has begun. BD&S has ... Read More

  • Second language acquisition by Roumyana Slabakova (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a textbook of second language acquisition (SLA) written within the theoretical framework of the generative approach to SLA research. The intended readers are advanced undergraduate students and graduate students who have some background in linguistics, in particular in syntax and semantics. The text is intended first and foremost for students with a prior background in generative linguistics. While the main linguistic concepts are explained when they are introduced, such explanations are necessarily brief, and students with no prior background in linguistics would find the more technical parts of the text somewhat difficult to follow. However, students or other readers who have a general interest in ... Read More
