Existentials and Locatives in Romance Dialects of Italy (Oxford Linguistics)

Existentials and Locatives in Romance Dialects of Italy (Oxford Linguistics) by Delia Bentley
English | Nov. 24, 2015 | ISBN: 0198745265 | 331 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

This book provides the first ever large-scale comparative treatment of there sentences (there copula NP), in over 100 Italo-Romance and Sardinian dialects spoken in Italy. It comprises detailed discussions of focus structure, predication and argument realization, definiteness effects, and the linking between semantics and syntax in there sentences, advancing novel proposals in each case. The authors test influential hypotheses on existential constructions against first-hand dialect evidence; they argue that existential and locative there sentences differ in focus structure and semantics, even though they display similar morphosyntactic features.
