  • Non-linear Blocking Effects on Suppletive Allomorphy

    • Authors: Ömer DEMİROK
      Abstract: It has been widely observed that suppletive allomorphy (e.g., better blocking *good+er in English) respects some form of locality; however, it is still debated if the relevant metric of locality needs to be stated in linear terms or structural terms (Embick, 2010; Bobaljik, 2012; cf. Moskal and Smith, 2015). This study contributes to this debate by investigating the root allomorphy patterns in Laz, an endangered South Caucasian language spoken primarily in Turkey. In each case of root allomorphy in Laz, the root is required to be linearly adjacent to the morpheme that conditions the allomorphy. Moreover, Laz exhibits (what will be called) non-linear blocking effects on allomorphy: Some prefixes can prevent a suffix from conditioning allomorphy on the root. Importantly, this case constitutes evidence that linear adjacency is not a sufficient condition on suppletive allomorphy and is at odds with the view that the domain of grammar responsible for selecting exponents operates on linearized structures (cf. Embick, 2010).

  • Visual perception verbs and degrees of certainty in Turkish: The case of
           görünmek and gözükmek

    • Authors: Zeynep ERK EMEKSİZ
      Abstract: This study aims at describing the meaning extensions and functions of the object-oriented see type verbs ‘görünmek’ and ‘gözükmek’ in Turkish in terms of the evidential status and epistemic stance they encode. The observations of this research are based on corpora obtained from Turkish National Corpus.The results indicate that görün- and gözük- share some common features in terms of their functions in discourse. They are both used evidentially with indirect evidence. TNC corpus in general shows that görün- in Turkish presents a dichotomous structure from subjective to intersubjective forms. The subjective forms ‘görün-, gibi görün’ have the highest usage of the objective personal pronoun ‘bana’ and the possessive form ‘gözüme’ indicating the involvement of the speakers/writers to the situation presented. When speakers/writers present their utterances in intersubjective point of view, they prefer the parenthetical forms such as ‘görünen o ki’ without any objective personal pronouns involved. This suggests that speakers/writers do not take the responsibility of the truthiness of their utterances in intersubjective mode.

  • A Corpus-Based Typology of Negation Strategies in Turkish Sign Language

    • Authors: Bahtiyar MAKAROĞLU
      Abstract: This paper investigates the distribution of negation strategies in Turkish Sign Language (TİD) in the light of frequency-based data from a naturalistic TİD Corpus. On the basis of frequency occurrences, this study offers a novel account of negation on typological grounds: (i) by focusing on nonmanual markers, we propose that a clause can be negated with a nonmanual element only – a pattern that has been typologically proposed for other sign languages – while previous studies classified TİD as a manual dominant language in terms of Zeshan’s typology (Zeshan, 2006), (ii) Also, we argue that backward head tilt has a syntactic characteristic, not lexically specified for NOT contrast to Gökgöz (2011), (iii) on the other hand, in line with Pfau (2016), we show that TİD can easily be classified as Non-Strict NC language. In addition, by proposing frequency-based typological distinction, we argue that TİD can be classified a hybrid negating sign language.

  • Open Science in Linguistic Research

    • Authors: Esra ATAMAN; Ozan Can ÇAĞLAR, Bilal KIRKICI
      Abstract: Discussions about open science, which draws attention to conducting more open, transparent, replicable, and reproducible studies, have been making an appearance in the global literature in recent years. These discussions have also found their place in linguistics, though there is no well-established literature on open science in this field in Turkey yet. Accordingly, by presenting an up-to-date summary of developments that pave the way for open science, such as the replication crisis, scientific fraud, and publication bias, this article examines how related principles such as transparency, replicability, and reproducibility can manifest themselves in linguistic research. In the article, the problems of hidden flexibility and questionable research practices are discussed within the scope of linguistic research with the aim of raising awareness about the seriousness of these problems. Four basic solutions suggested in the literature to avoid these problems (pre-registration, reproducible workflow, preprint, and data/material sharing) are presented together with their pros and cons and are brought to the language researchers' attention. It is possible to increase transparency, replicability, and reproducibility in linguistic research when researchers evaluate these proposed solutions in the literature by considering their own fields and conditions and apply them to the extent possible.
