Appositions Versus Double Subject Sentences – What Information the Speech Analysis Brings to a Grammar Debate [chapter]

Horia-Nicolai Teodorescu, Diana Trandabăţ
Text, Speech and Dialogue  
This paper brings a fresh gleam of light over the debate, by presenting what we believe to be the first study on the phonetic analysis of double-subject sentences in order to account for its difference  ...  We propose a method based on spoken language analysis to deal with controversial syntactic issues; we apply the method to the problem of the double subject sentences in the Romanian language.  ...  This research is part of the Romanian Academy "priority research" topic "Cognitive Systems".  ...

Demonstrative clefts and double cleft constructions in spontaneous spoken English

Andreea S. Calude
2008 Studia Linguistica  
The paper also discusses a related construction, termed here double cleft, which exhibits syntactic un-integratedness, as in thatÕs what youÕre supposed to do is rest and this is where he went is Auckland  ...  In particular, I would like to acknowledge their contribution to section 4, and thank them for pointing me to the studies which analyse the double cleft construction.  ...  One question to be asked is how does the examination of constructions such as demonstrative clefts and double clefts impact (if at all) on the debate regarding the number of grammars speakers and writers  ...

Welsh is a Verb-Subject-Object (VSO) language ; that is, in finite sentences the verb precedes both the subject and the object. Non-finite clauses, on the other hand, have Subject-Verb word order.  ...  It provides a formal analysis of the Welsh data in the framework of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar and compares it with approaches using the Principles and Parameters framework.  ...  When multiple negative dependents are combined in a single clause, the sentence can have either a single or a double negation reading, as illustrated in (10).

Subject-Verb Agreement with Coordinated Subjects in Ancient Greek

Francesco Mambrini, Marco Passarotti
2016 Journal of Greek Linguistics  
In spite of the amount of information that can be read on this topic in grammars of Ancient Greek, much is still to be known even at a general descriptive level.  ...  In this paper, we focus on a special domain of agreement (subject and verb agreement) and on one morphological feature that is expected to covary (number).  ...  In speech, syntactic coherence tends to work on a smaller scale than a complete sentence, and to be confined to smaller information units (Bakker 1990 ). ra and pa in Homer differ precisely on the boundaries  ...

Culminating and non-culminating accomplishments in Malagasy

Ileana Paul, Baholisoa Simone Ralalaoherivony, Henriëtte de Swart
2020 Linguistics  
The embedding of double prevention in a force-theoretic framework leads to a more fine-grained theory of causation, which the Malagasy data show to have empirical relevance.  ...  The double prevention configuration is associated with a circumstantial modal base, which leads to culminating readings in the past and future, but not the present tense.  ...  There is also debate concerning the status of what we call the subject, as either an A or A-bar element (see e.g., Pearson 2005) .  ...
