Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Aissen, Judith (2003)

Abstract

Foundational paper on the implementation of Differential Object Marking on Optimality Theory. The empirical observation: Direct objects which are high in prominence ( by being animate, definite etc.) are more likely to have phonologically overt case marking than low-prominence objects. Aissen derives this generalization by deducing OT-constraints by harmonic alignment and constraint conjunction from scales on animacy/definiteness and grammatical function (subject object).
