Kayardild Morphology and Syntax

Chapter 6 investigates determiner phrase (DP) structure. Arguments for the existence of a DP are given and an exemplification provided of filled and unfilled structural positions. Evidence suggests that N does not take a DP complement in modern Kayardild. Concord of case occurs within DP and of number within DP or NP under the constraint that Number heads, such as ‘one’, ‘two’, ‘many’, cannot inflect for number. Some case values only appear on DPs embedded in other DPs. Detailed arguments indicate that true locative case DPs do exist even though they are morphologically neutralized in most instances with DPs that are unmarked for case.

Keywords:   Kayardild, determiner phrase, inflection, case, number, concord, agreement
