Title: More ways to *ABA: the case of Blansitt's generalization

Abstract: In the talk, I look at the marking of datives, allatives and locatives.  Blansitt (1988) has observed that these roles may show various
syncretisms, with the exception of dative and locative being syncretic to the exclusion of the allative, an instance of the so-called *ABA
generalization. I explore its implementation in terms of feature decomposition, showing first why classical nesting structures (pioneered
in Jonathan Bobaljik's work on adjectival suppletion) won't work for this particular case, and proposing an alternative in terms of the so-called
overlapping decomposition.
