Control and Agreement in Dogrib.
Saxon, Leslie
A study of Dogrib, an Athapascan language, focuses on long-distance agreement in the case of reflexives. While this "control" relationship has generally been considered in the context of infinitives, it is proposed that evidence from long distance agreement in Dogrib indicates that control is also relevant for languages without non-finite verb forms. It is also argued that control facts in Dogrib provide evidence for empty noun phrases, contrary to previous analysis. (MSE)
