The internal structure of vP in ju|'hoansi and ‡hoan

Chris Collins

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In this article, I analyze ki (‡Hoan) and ko (Ju|'hoansi) as heading vP internal functional projections dominating VP and dominated by vP. I show how this analysis provides a natural account for the various possible and impossible word orders in constructions involving locative and instrumental phrases. Lastly, I discuss the general implications of my analysis for the theory of Case checking in Chomsky (2000, 2001a, b).
