Abstract DGFS 2016 On (negative) indefinites in Old Italian

Abstract for the Connference Talk at DGFS 20 2016

Abstract IGG 42 2016 A unified analysis of additives and aspectual markers

In our talk we examine diachronic data from Old Italian (OI) (taken from the O(pera del) V(ocabolario) I(taliano) data base), and we claim that additive markers like ​ anche (=‘also/too’ in positive contexts, and ‘neither’ in negative contexts), and aspectual markers like ​ ancora (= ‘still’, ‘again’ in positive or ‘yet’ in negative sentences) are similar and require a unified analysis. In support of our claim , we show that the syntax of OI aspectuals reflects their semantics.
