Verbal number, argument number and plural events in Marori

Arka, I Wayan

Description

This paper discusses number and plurality in the nominal and verbal domains of Marori (isolate, Trans New Guinea). Marori shows evidence that verbal number and argument/nominal number should be distinguished, even though they are integrated in a complex way, with some parallelism in the constructed mode of expressing limited plural (paucal). The complexity of the syntax and semantics of verbal number in relation to argument number, aspect, and other constructions such as reciprocals in this...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractThis paper discusses number and plurality in the nominal and verbal domains of Marori (isolate, Trans New Guinea). Marori shows evidence that verbal number and argument/nominal number should be distinguished, even though they are integrated in a complex way, with some parallelism in the constructed mode of expressing limited plural (paucal). The complexity of the syntax and semantics of verbal number in relation to argument number, aspect, and other constructions such as reciprocals in this language calls for a sophisticated precise unified analysis. I propose that verbal and nominal number have the same composite number features (+/�SG, +/�PL, and +/�AUG) and demonstrate that their intricacy can be straightforwardly captured within a unification-based LFG framework.
