Long distance agreement in Spanish dialects

Producció científica: Capítol de llibreCapítolRecerca

Resum

This paper discusses data from various dialects of Spanish manifesting agreement between an inflected verb and a pp-internal np in the context of non-paradigmatic SE (e.g., Se vieron a los niños – Eng. ‘Children were seen’). An analysis is put forward in terms of Long Distance Agreement (cf. Chomsky 2000; 2001) between T (the locus of nominative Case) and an np Goal within a kp/pp. It is shown that this derivational possibility is subject to different microparametric layers teasing apart varieties allowing agreement across dative-like Case assigners (in differential object marking) and other prepositions that do not obviously participate in standard Case-agreement dependencies—thus giving rise to a pattern that qualifies as a pseudopassive of sorts.
