Title: Q-Particles in Alternative Questions
Speaker: Erlinde Meertens (University of Konstanz)
Time and date: Monday 19.03.2018 18:00 at the Ling. Dept. Seminarraum
Abstract: In languages like Turkish and Sinhala alternative questions are
formed by attaching a particular morpheme, called 'Q(uestion)-particle', to
each of the disjuncts. This talk is concerned with the semantic
contribution of these Q-particles in plain polar questions. I argue they
are focus markers and show how their presence in each disjunct in
alternative questions determines alternative question meaning.
