Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Zwicky, Arnold (1997)

Abstract

(= Surrey 98) It is proposed that the morphosyntactic representation of person should be maximally expressed as +I, +I+II, +I-II, +II and +III, corresponding to the referential persons 1st, 1st inclusive, 1st exclusive, 2nd and 3rd. An alternative representation in terms of the features ±speaker and ±addressee is considered. Although it would predict certain syncretic patterns, it also predicts a non-occuring pattern (1st exclusive=3rd, opposed to 1st inclusive and 2nd), and fails to account for syncretism of 1st and 3rd.
