LINGUIST 232B: Seminar in Lexical Semantics: Unaccusativity

A general introduction to the phenomenon of unaccusativity, followed by in-depth exploration of several facets of this phenomenon, chosen according to participant's interests. Potential topics include: an assessment of proposed semantic determinants of unaccusativity, the linguistic representation of unaccusativity, its crosslinguistic manifestations, and case studies of unaccusative phenomena (e.g. auxiliary selection, resultatives, the causative alternation, psych-verbs, weather verbs). These topics may be approached from theoretical, typological, psycholinguistic, and acquisition perspectives. May be repeated for credit with different content. Prerequisite: Linguist 232A or permission of the instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 1-4 | Repeatable for credit
