Multiple verb movement in ‡ Hoan

Chris Collins

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    I argue that verbal compounds in ‡ Hoan are derived from underlying structures similar to serial verb constructions. I show that the derivation crucially involves multiple verb movement, which is subject to the same kinds of locality constraints as other types of multiple movement. I show how the multiple verb movement analysis applies to a range of verbal compounds in ‡ Hoan.
