Example text

Conclusion We have made two main claims in our analysis of inalienable possessive constructions in Southern Andean Spanish. The first is that this dialect of Spanish has a clitic which licenses a genitive phrase that is the subject of a predi­ cate phrase. This predicate phrase constitutes the syntactic expression of the possession relationship. We assume, with Kayne (1994), that the order posses­ sor-possessed is universally basic. Second, we have argued that word order dif­ ferences between several languages in contact (early and later stages of Southern Andean Spanish, varieties of Quechua) can be accounted for by structural differ­ ences in the inalienable possessive constructions of these languages.

We refer to subgroups rather than dialects be­ cause these differences in judgments are not defined by geographical boundaries. 2 We treat only the clitic en which replaces internal or external arguments, and do not treat the variety of the clitic en shown in the example below: (i) a. Trec I'abric deI'armari. b. En trec I'abric. " 3 These patterns of data are also exposed in Cortes (1992), where a different approach is pro­ posed—that lexical head government by V or I is the primitive responsible for the restrictions on en-extraction from subjects.

As an anonymous reviewer points out, there may be structural differences between bare and quantified en, although we believe this would not affect our conclusions here. 54 CORINNE CORTES & ANNA GAVARRO c.
