On the so-called half-transitive verbs in Eskimo

On the so-called half-transitive verbs in Eskimo
Pages: 193 - 218
Auteur(s) / Author(s): Osahito Miyaoka
Résumé:

L'auteur propose une analyse des principaux types de phrases en yupik central en termes d'expansion et de réduction des bases nominales présentes dans les verbes auxquels on assigne une hiérarchie de cas syntaxiques. Cependant, cet article vise d'abord à élucider, à la lumière des verbes adversatifs, la nature de ce que la linguistique inuit appelle, avec plus ou moins de bonheur, les verbes semi-transitifs. Le système global de réduction nominale et d'expansion ainsi que le glissement de cas qui y est relié seront analysés dans un autre article.

 

Abstract:

This is an initial attempt to examine the basic sentence types in Central Yupik, in terms of EXPANSION and REDUCTION of nominals inherently involved in verbs to which syntactic cases are hierarchically assigned. The main objective of this paper, however, is to elucidate in the light of ADVERSATIVE VERBS the nature of what has been known in Eskimo linguistics by the somewhat obscure term of HALF-TRANSITIVE VERBS. The whole system of nominal reduction and expansion as well as the correlated CASE SHIFT will be described in a separate paper.
