|Title:||The Clause Structure of Pulaar|
|Publisher:||University of Kansas|
|Abstract:||In this thesis, I investigate the clause structure of Pulaar, an Atlantic language spoken in Senegal. Specifically, I look at the ordering of functional heads under the hypothesis on the Hierarchy of Functional Heads in Cinque (1999). I also look at the derivation of these functional morphemes under Baker’s Mirror Principle (1985). Thus, I show that Pulaar is largely consistent with those hypotheses. I provide an extensive background on Pulaar, ranging from its sound system to its syntax and its aspectual system.|
