  • Self-organization in the spelling of English suffixes: The emergence of
           culture out of anarchy
    • Abstract: The English language has never been regulated. The founding of the Accademia della Crusca in Florence in 1582 and the Académie Française in 1735, both devoted to overseeing language, led such British scientific and literary luminaries as Robert Boyle, Jonathan Swift, and Joseph Addison to propose a similar governing body for English. Strongly opposed by Samuel Johnson on the grounds of ‘English liberty’ (Martin 2008:197), the idea quickly fell out of fashion, leaving the language with no government or police.1 Nonetheless, as we will show, just like a spoken language, English spelling has arrived at a system despite the lack of any overt guidance. Textbooks (e.g. Scragg 1974) suggest that three ... Read More

  • Accounting for the learnability of saltation in phonological theory: A
           maximum entropy model with a P-map bias
    • Abstract: Ultimately, the goal of phonological theory is not just to account for which patterns are possible or impossible in human language; the theory must also be able to explain why certain patterns, though possible, are more difficult to learn (or are otherwise dispreferred) compared to others. This idea has a long history (e.g. see Kiparsky 1982:59–60), but until recently most of the theoretical work in phonology focused on the first issue: developing a framework that could derive the existing patterns while excluding the ones deemed impossible. In recent years, however, phonology has experienced an explosion of new empirical results thanks, in part, to new methods for collecting data and more sophisticated ways of ... Read More

  • Dementia and grammar in a polysynthetic language: An Arapaho case study
    • Abstract: Many studies have been done on the effects of aging-related dementias on spoken language production. Most studies of conversation and narrative have found that what is impaired is access to the lexicon and discourse pragmatics, including coherence, relevance, and clear referents for pronouns, while morphology and syntax are reported to be (relatively) unimpaired in discourse (e.g. Murdoch et al. 1987). To the best of our knowledge, however, all of the languages in which dementia has been studied to date belong to only two of the four basic (morphological) typological groups: inflectional and agglutinating. Data on dementing language from isolating languages are likely to become available in the near future. ... Read More

  • Which noun phrases is the verb supposed to agree with?: Object
           agreement in American English
    • Abstract: Over the last several decades, the study of agreement phenomena in natural language has proven fruitful for both psycholinguistics and theoretical linguistics. In recent psycholinguistic traditions, agreement has been influential for the development of theories of language production (see Bock & Middleton 2011 and Franck 2011 for reviews) and more recently for the development of theories of syntactic comprehension (Clifton et al. 1999, Dillon et al. 2013, Pearlmutter et al. 1999, Tanner et al. 2014, Wagers et al. 2009). In the present article we contribute to this broad research program by investigating the effects that a fronted wh-object can exert on the perception of agreement dependencies within a ... Read More

  • Extra be: The syntax of shared shell-noun constructions in English
    • Abstract: This article examines a set of nonprescriptive constructions found primarily in spoken English that I refer to preanalytically as ‘extra be constructions’, since they seem to include an extra verb, be. In the literature on extra be constructions, two main types are isolated, so I begin by presenting these types, although I later argue that this distinction is largely superficial. The first type, illustrated in 1a, is commonly referred to as the double be construction, but it is also referred to as the double is, extris, extra is, ISIS, double copula, thing-is, reduplicative copula, or 2-be construction. The second type, illustrated in 1b, is commonly referred to as the single be construction, but it is also known ... Read More

  • Comparisons of nominal degrees
    • Abstract: This article addresses the differences between the comparison constructions in which nouns and adjectives participate, and the differences between nouns and adjectives that explain them.1 It only deals with comparisons of the degree to which entities exemplify adjectives or nouns (as in e.g. taller or more a student than a teacher). It sets aside cardinality comparisons (as in e.g. more students than teachers came; cf. Wellwood 2014) and partitive comparisons in which more takes a PP complement instead of a nominal one (as in more of a bird, but see discussion in §4.2). The primary focus is therefore on the circumstances in which noun phrases directly combine with more to express degree relations. It is ... Read More

  • Competing models of liaison acquisition: Evidence from corpus and
           experimental data
    • Abstract: French liaison is a relatively frequent (Boë & Tubach 1992) morphophonological process occurring at the boundary of two contiguous words. It is context-dependent, causing an otherwise silent consonant (liaison consonant or LC) that appears orthographically at the end of one word (W1) to surface in speech when a vowel-initial word (W2) follows. For example, in isolation or when followed by a consonant-initial word, deux ‘two’ is pronounced [dø]; however, when it is followed by a vowel-initial word, like amis ([ami] ‘friend’), a /z/ surfaces between the two words, yielding the string [døzami]. Liaison overwhelmingly resyllabifies the final consonant of W1 as the onset of W2 (Côté 2011). For example, in deux amis ... Read More

  • The Austronesian languages by Robert Blust (review)
    • Abstract: The Austronesian languages (henceforth AL) by Robert Blust is a lightly revised and updated version of a book with the same title published in the Pacific Linguistics series in 2009.1 AL is superficially daunting—845 large pages! But it is written and organized clearly, reads easily, and will be the standard reference for work on Austronesian (AN) languages for generations to come. Indeed, AL is unlikely to ever be superseded. Obviously, it cannot possibly tell us all there is to know about the 1,250 AN languages (Lewis 2009:19) of which AL mentions only 812(!). But AL does present a considerable range of observations and linguistic patterns that will be helpful for linguists and others doing research on AN ... Read More

  • The syntax of yes and no by Anders Holmberg (review)
    • Abstract: This monograph is a crosslinguistic investigation of the syntax of yes/no questions and their answers. The idea is that answers to these questions, even when they consist of a single word, are derived by ellipsis from a full sentential expression. Because the elided constituent is identical to the constituent in the preceding question, the syntax of answers turns out to be very much the same as the syntax of questions. The discussions and proposals are based on data from 136 languages, out of which a handful (English, Swedish, Finnish, Chinese, Thai, and Welsh) are selected for closer analysis. The languages have been examined in relation to two parameters of variation, namely, if answer particles (as in 1a) ... Read More

  • Beyond aspect: The expression of discourse functions in African languages
           ed. by Doris L. Payne and Shahar Shirtz (review)
    • Abstract: This volume presents a series of corpus-based studies analyzing the various grammatical devices used to express discourse functions and to structure narratives in some ten African languages. Thanks to the editors’ efforts in setting up comparative concepts, the scope of this book doubtless goes far beyond African linguistics and should interest descriptive linguists and typologists, as well as specialists of discourse studies. The book opens with an introductory and synthetic chapter by the editors. The nine following articles, each devoted to studies on particular languages, are then ordered along language families (or phyla) of Africa. In their substantial introductory article ‘Discourse ...

  • The phonetics–phonology interface: Representations and methodologies ed.
           by Joaquín Romero and María Riera (review)
    • Abstract: This book presents thirteen papers from the 5th Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia (PaPI) conference in June 2011 in Tarragona, Spain. These papers were selected because they ‘showcase… the thematic and methodological richness of the work presented at the 2011 meeting…that goes beyond the Romance realm’ (vii) and because they ‘represent a multifaceted cross section of current work on the phonetics-phonology interface’ (xix). The majority of the papers focus on Romance languages, but many will nonetheless be of interest to phoneticians and laboratory phonologists working on other languages. The volume includes papers from leading experts in the field as well as junior scientists and is intended for experienced ... Read More

  • Dative sickness: A phylogenetic analysis of argument structure evolution
           in Germanic
    • Abstract: One of the problems of reconstructing syntax and grammar, and hence for modeling language change, is the alleged lack of directionality of syntactic change (Miranda 1976, Lightfoot 1979, Lightfoot 2002, Campbell & Mithun 1980, Pires & Thomason 2008). This alleged lack of directionality has, in fact, been argued to be a pseudo-problem by many scholars, who have suggested analyses where this purported problem is satisfactorily dealt with (cf. Harris & Campbell 1995, Gildea 1998, Kikusawa 2003, Eythórsson & Barðdal 2011, 2016, Willis 2011, Barðdal & Eythórsson 2012a, 2017, Barðdal 2013, 2015, Barðdal et al. 2013, Barðdal & Smitherman 2013, Walkden 2014, inter alia). In an attempt to argue for the feasibility ... Read More
