Low IP periphery in Chinese: the Mandarin ba-construction

Yangyu SUN (Università degli Studi di Padova)

 

This presentation will talk about the syntactic properties of the “ba-construction” Mandarin Chinese under new theoretical frameworks. By introducing the event-decomposition method proposed by Ramchand (2008), I argue that the ba-construction conveys the causativity and the resultativity of the event at the same time. Then, assuming that it is a functional head, I will show a “position test” of the marker ba and the result indicates that ba is a voice head in the hierarchy of functional projections proposed by Cinque (1999, 2006).

 

 

How do you call it? The case of persimmon (Diospyros kaki) in Italy

 

Hiroshi KUBO (Tokyo University of Foreign Studies)

 

The main purpose of the talk is to show the diatopic variation in Italy, with special focus on the case of persimmon, called Shìzi in Mandarin Chinese. In standard Italian, the fruit is called [kaːki], which is derived from Japanese [kaki]. I will show that there are some variants of the name of this fruit in different regions in Italy. I will also show some evidence which proves that the variation occurred between 1870 and 1950.

This study could be an example of the fact that a linguistic variation occurs in only few decades in an unexpected way.
