XVIII Конференция по типологии и грамматике для молодых исследователей
- Г. Корбетт (Университет Суррея, Гилфорд), “Renewing the Agreement Hierarchy: A canonical typology approach”
Аннотация: The Agreement Hierarchy consists of these target positions: attributive, predicate, relative pronoun and personal pronoun. It constrains the distribution of agreement options in that the likelihood of agreement with greater semantic justification increases monotonically as we move up the hierarchy. The Agreement Hierarchy covers a wide range of disparate data, and continues to figure regularly in work on theoretical syntax. Since the hierarchy was first proposed, typology has moved on. This means that to remain fit for the purposes for which it is currently used, the hierarchy needs an overhaul. The area where most progress has been made, and the need for revisiting is greatest, is the typology of agreement controllers. This is therefore our focus. The canonical typology of controllers has two dimensions: lexeme to phrase, and local to extraneous (the latter involving honorific agreement, associative agreement, back agreement and ‘pancake sentences’). The two dimensions are amply illustrated. Finally, interactions between the different types of agreement controller are investigated, since these prove revealing for the typology. Besides making progress in the typology of agreement, the paper contributes to typology more generally, in showing how we can benefit from insights from other typological disciplines.
- М. Полински (Мэрилендский университет, Колледж-Парк), “In search of experimental syntax”
Аннотация: In this talk, I will present and analyze some core principles of experimental approaches to syntax. I will start the talk by discussing what motivates the emergence of the experimental paradigm in syntactic investigations and the ways in which experimental syntax has been successful. I will then present some phenomena where experimental investigations are not warranted because the analysis of primary data is sufficient to update existing models. From there, the discussion will move to those cases where experimental work in syntax can help distinguish between different theoretical analyses (experiments at the service of theory) and to the opposite set of cases where theoretical sophistication can help us refine our experimental measures. The phenomena under discussion include case, agreement, concord, anaphoric and syntactic long-distance dependencies.
- П. М. Аркадьев (Институт славяноведения РАН, Москва / РГГУ, Москва), "Typology of polysynthesis and Northwest Caucasian languages"
Аннотация: In my lecture I shall address problematic issues pertaining to definitions and constituting properties of polysynthesis and typology of polysynthetic languages, and shall focus on what Northwest Caucasian languages can contribute to our better understanding of these issues.
