Abstract:   (1100 Views)
In Koohmare Sorkhi dialect, ergative constructions can be viewed in terms of recent phase theory and bare phrase syntax in generative view. Koohmare Sorkhi includes canonical forms such as “om goft” in which a clitics is added to the left part of the verb in past accusative constructions. The production of this form and other similar forms can be justified in the framework of phase theory as well as incorporation. In this dialect, V is considered as phase head and T shows both V features and T features. V feature causes movement of V into T. In the next stage, incorporation works after post syntactic operation and the deleting features occur before reaching interfaces. Clitics are bundles of features, and V attracts them as phase head. The mechanism for incorporation is adjunction, and the label of clitics should not be distinct to which it is incorporated. Incorporation and movement have been viewed in the framework of bare phrase structure. Movement to T is syntactic movement and after that incorporation combines past form with clitics in logical form to produce the final form. This operation has been viewed in several languages. Introducing vPs as phases in ergative constructions can be a solution to their contrast in this structure with other structures.
