Cycle BCL - Caterina Donati (joint work with Carlo Cecchetto)

Labeling reduced sentences : problem solved ?

Jeudi 28 octobre, 11h–12h, SJA3, salle 213

Labeling reduced sentences : problem solved ?


The talk focuses on a number of reduced structures in Italian, that all involve the past participle of an unaccusative or passive verb that agrees with its internal argument.
In addition to proposing a description of these five structures (some of which have been under described so far), we shall contribute to two main theoretical issues : the first concerns the debate on reduced structures (are they always elliptical or can they be base generated as such ?), while the second concerns the theory of labelling (can “flat" structures be labeled, and how ?).
