Work Papers of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session, Volume 24.
Daly, John P.; Daly, Margaret H.
The working papers in this volume, written by staff and advanced students of the Summer Institute of Linguistics at the University of North Dakota, include the following: "The Antigone Constraint" (David Tuggy); "Clause Types in Southeastern Tepehuan" (Thomas L. Willett); "Sentence Components in Southeastern Tepehuan" (Thomas L. Willett); "Ethical Dative and Possessor Omission Si, Possessor Ascension No!" (David Tuggy); and "Notes on African Linguistics" (Terri Scruggs). The first paper presents a class of sentences that certain syntactic rules of English would be expected to produce, but that are ungrammatical. The next two papers are beginning studies of the grammatical structure of Southeastern Tepehuan (Uto-Aztecan). The fourth paper presents syntactic and semantic arguments against possessor ascension in Spanish, and the last paper is a survey of some of the common features of African languages. (VWL)
