Conférence CRISCO " On cartography and the status of functional categories" par Guglielmo CINQUE (University, Venice, Italy)

Le jeudi 30 mars 2017

14 h – 16 h

Salle de documentation du CRISCO

Résumé :

In this talk I will revisit in the light of certain recent developments the structure of the functional sequence of the clause, as it bears on the status of functional categories and of the cartographic hierarchies of the sentence (and of its major phrases). This issue will also be considered in relation to the derivation of head-initial and head-final word orders, with its implications for typology and language acquisition.
