  • Nominal subextractions and the structure of NPs in Serbian and English 

    Bašic, Monika (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2004-06-08)
    The thesis argues for a remnant movement analysis of constructions referred to in the literature as Left Branch Extractions (LBE). The best known cases of LBE, or what I term split-XPs, are found in Slavic languages, which allow all prenominal constituents to be separated from the noun they modify. I argue that the derivation of these constructions proceeds in two steps. First, the ...
  • Vocalic feature assimilation in Cairene Arabic and Buchan Scots. Contrast and phonological activity in the parallel structures model of feature geometry 

    Youssef, Islam M. (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2006-06-06)
    This thesis examines two phonological processes in which vocalic features assimilate to neighboring segments with complex consonant-vowel interactions, namely emphasis spread in Cairene Arabic and lowered larynx assimilation in Buchan Scots. I propose a non-linear analysis in the framework of the Parallel Structures Model (PSM) of feature geometry (Morén 2003). This model provides a unified account ...
  • The interaction of English particles, Bulgarian prefixes, and telicity 

    Vitkova Vitkova, Polya (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2004-06-15)
    The present work is a comparative analysis of English particles, Bulgarian prefixes, and the telicity effects they induce. Three classes of verbs are investigated: creation-consumption verbs, degree achievements/accomplishments, and the special "eat-drink" class. The results show that in Bulgarian, prefixes induce telicity regardless of the nature of the verbal object, whereas in ...
  • English particles, Russian prefixes, and prepositional phrases 

    Rojina, Nina (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2004-06-15)
    This thesis is an attempt to identify the position for particles in English and prefixes in Russian in the context of the nature of the prepositional phrase. In order to solve this problem I examine the nature of verb-particle constructions and prefixed verbs in English and Russian respectively. I show that particles and prefixes have much in common. Russian prefixes as well as English particles ...
  • Japanese style scrambling in Russian. Myth and reality 

    Glushan, Zhanna (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2006-06-19)
    Long distance scrambling in Russian is not a well-understood phenomenon and a proper description of it is absent from the current literature. This thesis is an attempt to investigate the properties of long distance scrambling in Russian and compare the discovered facts to long distance scrambling in Japanese in the light of Boškoviæ and Takahashi’s (1998) description as well as to other displacement ...
