This publication represents the end result of a longer interval of box paintings at the Palauan language, performed whereas i used to be a graduate scholar on the college of California at San Diego. The ebook was once born as a brief time period paper written in 1982; from a forgettable infancy, that paper grew and grew, achieving the age of majority in my dissertation on the finish of 1985. a few of its offspring have long gone off all alone, as indepen­ dent papers, as path fabrics, or as innovations that experience no longer but com­ pletely materialized. a few were disowned. the total maturity of this examine of Palauan is learned within the current publication. nearly each element of the dissertation has been rewritten, up-to-date, or differently (I wish) more desirable. the place the dissertation was once nonetheless being affected by quite a few difficulties, the publication has stumbled on options. the purpose of the booklet is still, although, to offer wide insurance of Palauan, with emphasis on A' binding, instead of to concentration narrowly on a number of hugely particular theoretical matters. i am hoping to have completed a stability among featuring the language in actual fact and nonprejudicially, and deal­ ing with a variety of of its houses in present theoretical phrases. If i've got, the e-book should still end up to be a source for extra typological examine of the phenomena it describes.

Example text

Flora (1969) and Carlson (1968) are the basic sources on the taxonomic phonemic analysis of Palauan. Wilson (1972) and Flora (1974) are valuable analyses of the phonology and morphology of the Palauan verb, written from within the generative phonology framework of SPE (Chomsky and Halle 1968). Josephs relies substantially on Wilson's work in his treatment of the morphology. 1. OVERVIEW This grammatical sketch of Palauan draws on the sources described above as well as my field notes, 1981 to 1985.

Since it is clear that in some languages either N or P may be proper governors (for N, see Chapter Three below, and Georgopoulos 1991a; for P see McCloskey and Hale 1984), the issue may depend on parametric typology rather than any universal principle. 10 In Chapter Six I propose that such a unified condition can account independently for weak crossover. 11 Belletti and Rizzi (1981, p.
