This paper argues that the alternation between syntactically accusative and ergative clauses in Balinese results from different mappings between argument structure and syntactic realization. Our version of argument structure, essentially the ARG-S feature of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar, is the locus of anaphoric binding conditions.

This book is the first comprehensive study of Balinese morphosyntax from a lexicalist perspective. It discusses intricate facts in the relationship between morphosyntax and semantics in Balinese.

Ergativity in case or agreement systems is not uncommon among the world's languages. More rarely, however, we encounter languages in which the kind of subjecthood tests discussed in chapter 10 reveal an “ergative” pattern in the syntax.

This “syntactic ergativity” will be the main focus of this chapter. Ergativity languages,includingInuitlanguagessuchasWestGreenlandic(Bittner)andInukti-tut(Johns),AustronesianlanguagessuchasNiuean(Seiter In linguistic typology, ergative–absolutive alignment is a type of morphosyntactic alignment in which the single argument ("subject") of an intransitive verb behaves like the object of a transitive verb, and differently from the agent of a transitive verb.

Although there is only one ergative language in Europe (Basque), perhaps one-quarter of the world's languages show ergative properties. This survey of the various types looks at the ways they Reviews: 1. Ergativity and Transitivity Ellen Woolford Ergative case is said to mark transitive subjects, and it is widely as-sumed that this is true under the ordinary definition of transitive; how-ever, Bittner and Hale () propose that ergative languages fall into two types, neither of which is.

The second reason to maintain a narrow definition of Ergativity and Balinese Syntax book ergativity has to do with the general architecture of grammar, at least the way it is viewed in generative approaches to syntax.

Such approaches assume that at the core of the syntactic computational system we find narrow syntax, which is assumed to be invariant across languages and.

Ellen Woolford. University of Massachusetts. Abstract Ergative case is said to mark transitive subjects, and it is widely assumed that this is true under the ordinary notion of transitivity, where all and only clauses with a direct object in syntax are transitive.

However, Bittner and Hale propose that. The volume's central concern is grammatical voice, traditionally known as diathesis, and its classical manifestations as Active, Middle, and Passive. While numerous problems in the meaning, syntax, and morphology of these categories in Indo-European remain unsolved, their counterparts in more exotic languages have raised still further questions.

This paper will account for the interaction between syntax and semantics/pragmatics in the speech styles of Balinese. The analysis makes use of an explicit representation that accounts for the co-occurrence restrictions on linguistic expressions which are imposed by social information associated with the speech- level system.

It is proposed that social information be treated in terms of social. Chiang Mai: Silkworm Books,v + 74 pp. -Aone van Engelenhoven, I Ketut Artawa, Ergativity and Balinese syntax. Jakarta: Badan Penyelenggaran Seri NUSA, Universitas Katolik Indonesia Atma Jaya,v + pp (in 3 volumes).

This volume offers theoretical and descriptive perspectives on the issues pertaining to ergativity, a grammatical patterning whereby direct objects are in some way treated like intransitive subjects, to the exclusion of transitive subjects.

This pattern differs markedly from nominative/accusative marking whereby transitive and intransitive subjects are treated as one grammatical class, to the. 3 Balinese grammar has been well researched, mainly in the form of Ph.D.

‘ergativity’ is also sometimes used to refer to an alternation between the transitive and intransitive use of a verb in which the argument functioning as the direct object in the transitive variant is the subject when the verb is used intransitively.

It is in this latter sense that ‘ergativity’ can be observed in Chinese. Ergativity.

Ergativity is a fascinating topic, and Ergativity is a book which does it justice. However, the book is interesting for more than just its content: it also affords numerous little glimpses into the personality of its author.

She finished her PhD at MIT in and then spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. Jessica has worked on topics including ergativity, split ergativity, verb-initial word order, and agreement, with a special focus on Mayan languages.

Her book Aspects of Split Ergativity was published by Oxford University Press in Ergativity is one of the main challenges both for linguistic and acquisition theories. This book is unique, taking a cross-linguistic approach to the acquisition of ergativity in a large variety of typologically distinct languages.

The chapters cover languages from different families and from different geographic areas with different expressions of ergativity. This volume presents a collection of papers on the enticing and complex theme of Ergativity.

The papers exemplify theoretical depth applied to a wide range of languages, with the majority of papers based on original fieldwork. Ergativity refers to a grammatical pattern in which the logical subject.

It has been suggested that ergativity plays a crucial role in these systems. This paper argues that voice and case reflect separate but interacting systems, which can be dissociated from each other, based on the behavior of voice in Dinka (Nilotic; South Sudan) and Balinese (Austronesian; Indonesia).

However, it includes a detailed discussion of argument marking, which makes it very relevant to transitivity as well.

Analyzing Syntax: A Lexical-Functional Approach is a comprehensive and accessible textbook on syntactic analysis, designed for students of linguistics at advanced undergraduate or graduate level. Working within the 'Lexical Functional Grammar' (LFG) approach, it provides students with a framework for analyzing and describing grammatical structure, using extensive examples from both.

In Balinese, actor and patient arguments of transitive verbs can be equally selected as the grammatical sub ject without demotion o f the other argument (Arka, ).

This contrasts with the situation in nominative-accusative languages such as Latin or English, in which the subjects of both transitive and intransitive verbs.

This paper accounts for the ka- passive form in Balinese. It focuses on its syntactic and semantic representation. Using the data taken from Balinese narrative texts issued in the Bali Orti of Bali Post newspaper, and applying the RRG theory by Van Valin and Randy (), it was found out that the ka- passive belongs to a morphological passive voice of Balinese where the the voice is marked on.

Since oblique objects in antipassives are typically indefinite or nonspecific, this case cannot appear with a proper name. When a proper name is the. Ergativity in morphology cannot be entirely divorced from syntax proper. The facts such as example 5 that support this conclusion are what falls under the heading of syntactic ergativity.

What exactly in the grammar is responsible for extraction restrictions as in West Greenlandic. AS provides almost no exercises as competing text books on syntax do (e.g. OuhallaCarnie ). Some may find this a disadvantage. The casual introductions at the beginning of each chapter may be misleading when students come back to them and read them as containing valid definitions.
