Surviving sluicing
Tina Šuligoj, Vesna Plesničar, Petra Mišmaš, Franc Marušič, 2018, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: In this paper, we discuss examples of sluicing in Slovenian in which, in addition to a wh-phrase (or wh-phrases in instances of multiple sluicing) discourse particles appear. This is unexpected given Merchant’s (2001) Sluicing-COMP generalization, as already observed in Marušič et al. (2015), even though there are several languages in which similar cases exist, e.g. German. In this paper we focus on discourse particles pa and že in (multiple) wh-questions and sluicing. These examples are not only important for our understanding of sluicing but are also crucial for analyzing discourse particles in Slovenian. Based on examples with sluicing and discourse particles in Slovenian, we argue against positioning these particles within the whphrase, clitic cluster or the IP.

Elided Clausal Conjunction Is Not the Only Source of Closest‐Conjunct Agreement: A Picture‐Matching Study
Branimir Stanković, Anita Peti-Stantić, Ivana Mitić, Petra Mišmaš, Nataša Milićević, Tanja Milićev, Franc Marušič, Frane Malenica, Nedžad Leko, Marijana Kresić, Nermina Čordalija, Nadira Aljović, Jana Willer-Gold, Boban Arsenijević, Jelena Tušek, Andrew Nevins, 2019, original scientific article

Abstract: A recurring hypothesis about the agreement phenomena generalized as closest‐conjunct agreement takes this pattern to result from reduced clausal conjunction, simply displaying the agreement of the verb with the nonconjoined subject of the clause whose content survives ellipsis (Aoun, Benmamoun & Sportiche 1994, 1999; see also Wilder 1997). Closest‐conjunct agreement is the dominant agreement pattern in the South Slavic languages Slovenian and Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian. A natural question is whether closest‐conjunct agreement in these varieties may indeed be analyzed as entirely derived from conjunction reduction. In this article, we report on two experiments conducted to test this. The results reject the hypothesis as far as these languages are concerned, thereby upholding the relevance of models developed to account for closest‐conjunct agreement within theories of agreement.

Potujoča jezikovna svetovalnica Fakultete za humanistiko (Nova Gorica)
Rok Žaucer, Petra Mišmaš, Franc Marušič, other performed works

Abstract: Potujoča jezikovna svetovalnica Fakultete za humanistiko je bila izvedena v okviru Tedna Univerze v Novi Gorici. Prvi del svetovalnice je bil izveden v sredo, 16. oktobra 2019, od 14.30 do 16.00 na Klubu goriških študentov v Novi Gorici (Trg Edvarda Kardelja 1, Nova Gorica). V dogodku, namenjenem predvsem dijakom, smo obiskovalcem odgovorili na vprašanja o jeziku in jim predstavili orodja, s katerimi si bodo v prihodnje pri podobnih vprašanjih lahko pomagali tudi sami. Svoja vprašanja so lahko obiskovalci posredovali tudi vnaprej, največ vprašanj pa je bilo namenjenih prevzemanju in pregibanju lastnih zemljepisnih imen.

Tvorbeno jezikoslovje o slovenščini
Franc Marušič, Petra Mišmaš, Rok Žaucer, other performed works

Abstract: Tvorbeno jezikoslovje je nastalo v petdesetih letih prejšnjega stoletja in se hitro razširilo po Severni Ameriki in drugod po svetu. Spodbudilo je tudi nastanek številnih variacij osnovne ideje ter tudi tako pripomoglo k prepoznavnosti splošnega jezikoslovja. V Sloveniji je bilo tvorbeno jezikoslovje dolgo časa obrobno, četudi smo imeli s tvorbenim jezikoslovje stik že vsaj od šestdesetih let. V zadnjih letih je število tvorbenih objav o slovenščini skokovito naraslo, zaradi česar se zdi primerno narediti pregled nekaj najodmevnejših objav, ki vključujejo slovenske podatke.

Looking for Cognitive Foundations of Functional Sequences
Rok Žaucer, Petra Mišmaš, Franc Marušič, 2019, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: With the multiplication of various functional projections, syntactic structures became very complex entities. Approaches like Cartography (e.g. Cinque and Rizzi 2008) went one step further than most other approaches, proposing that each sentence comprises of a number of universal, strictly ordered functional projections. In the noun phrase, the strictly ordered functional projections are said to be responsible not only for the relative order of numerals, demonstratives and nouns (cf. Cinque 2005), but also for the universal order of various types of adjectives (cf. Hetzron 1978; Sproat and Shih 1991; Cinque 1994; Scott 2002, etc.). Cinque and Rizzi (2008) discuss possible origins of the many hierarchies of functional projections and suggest that they might derive from general cognition. If cognition and its restrictions are behind the hierarchy of functional projections, then the order of projections hosting adjectives should be reflected in various non-linguistic cognitive processes. We designed several experiments to test this hypothesis. Our experiments did not confirm our hypothesis; but as we have also identified problems in the design of our experiments, our results do not warrant a clear rejection of the hypothesis either.

Do children use language structure to discover the recursive rules of counting?
Petra Mišmaš, Priyanka Biswas, Rok Žaucer, Franc Marušič, Jessica Sullivan, Rose M. Schneider, Vesna Plesničar, David Barner, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: We test the hypothesis that children acquire knowledge of the successor function — a foundational principle stating that every natural number n has a successor n + 1 — by learning the productive linguistic rules that govern verbal counting. Previous studies report that speakers of languages with less complex count list morphology have greater counting and mathematical knowledge at earlier ages in comparison to speakers of more complex languages (e.g., Miller & Stigler, 1987). Here, we tested whether differences in count list transparency affected children’s acquisition of the successor function in three languages with relatively transparent count lists (Cantonese, Slovenian, and English) and two languages with relatively opaque count lists (Hindi and Gujarati). We measured 3.5- to 6.5-year-old children’s mastery of their count list’s recursive structure with two tasks assessing productive counting, which we then related to a measure of successor function knowledge. While the more opaque languages were associated with lower counting proficiency and successor function task performance in comparison to the more transparent languages, a unique within-language analytic approach revealed a robust relationship between measures of productive counting and successor knowledge in almost every language. We conclude that learning productive rules of counting is a critical step in acquiring knowledge of recursive successor function across languages, and that the timeline for this learning varies as a function of count list transparency.

Distributed agreement in participial sandwiched configurations
Andrew Nevins, Franc Marušič, 2020, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: In recent years, several proposals have appeared that try to model the patterns of agreement with coordinate noun phrases found in South Slavic Languages. We investigate agreement in so-called sandwiched configurations, whereby a coordinated noun phrase sits between two agreeing participles. In such cases, the two participles do not necessarily agree with each other, given a scenario in which the first and the second conjunct have different phi-features. This means the two participles choose their target of agreement independently. We argue the results of our experimental study favor an approach to agreement that places it partially in PF.

Experimenting with Highest Conjunct Agreement under Left Branch Extraction
Jana Willer-Gold, Franc Marušič, Boban Arsenijević, 2020, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: A debate has developed in the recent theoretical and experimental linguistic literature on the status and the locus of conjunct agreement in South Slavic (SS; Marušič et al. 2007, Bošković 2009, Franks & Willer Gold 2014, Murphy & Puškar 2015; Marušič et al. 2015 and Willer Gold et al. 2016). One of the pertinent issues of the debate is the status of Highest Conjunct Agreement – agreement with the hierarchically highest conjunct (NP1) – in sentences with a preverbal subject. The question around which the debate revolves is a basic one: Is there Highest Conjunct Agreement (HCA) in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS), and how is it blocked, or derived, respectively?
