Multiple Verb Movement in ≠ Hoan
Article PDF (129.71 KB)
Abstract

I argue that verbal compounds in ≠ Hoan are derived from underlying structures similar to serial verb constructions. I show that the derivation crucially involves multiple verb movement, which is subject to the same kinds of locality constraints as other types of multiple movement. I show how the multiple verb movement analysis applies to a range of verbal compounds in ≠ Hoan.
