AVE' AND TENE': ANOTHER LOOK AT AUXILIARY SELECTION IN AQUILAN
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of English.ORCID iD: 0000-0001-7042-3576

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a unified approach on two poorly understood problems of auxiliary selection in the Aquilan dialect. The first problem pertains to the distribution of an auxiliary verb that denotes the notion of possession, tene'. The second problem pertains to the distribution of a more standard auxiliary verb, aye', which denotes the notion of existence in compound tenses, in suppletive distribution with esse. A proposed solution is that the distribution of both auxiliary verbs can be accounted via a simple analysis of Aquilan's person-driven agreement: how a verb interacts with its arguments. This analysis is based on a formal (type-logical) representation of Distributed Morphology combined with Type-Logical calculi, and shown to correctly account and predict the distribution of these auxiliary verbs.
