|Title:||Clitic doubling as differential object marking|
Differential object marking
Person case constraint
|Publisher:||Venice : Center of Language Sciences|
|Abstract:||Taking my cue from clitic doubling constructions primarily in Balkan languages where this phenomenon is prevalent, my goals in this paper are to show that: (i) clitic doubling is a form of differential object marking; (ii) clitic doubling is the spell-out of agreement with a [+given] XP; (iii) clitic doubled indefinites are “non-novel” indefinites; (iv) the restrictor of ‘all’-quantifiers is always ‘given’; (v) generalized quantifiers are formed in two steps, crucially involving an intermediate DP-layer as the complement of the quantifier head; (vi) the XP in (ii) is invariably a DP; (vii) the person-case constraint is in effect differential object marking.|
