Articles

Man, Lu and Jeroen van de Weijer 2024 The multiple functions of the reflexive pronoun in TujiaLinguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area 47:1, pp. 140–159 | Article
This paper investigates the functions of the reflexive pronoun ko 53 to 21/to 21 in Tujia, a Tibeto-Burman (TB) language. Apart from being used as a verb object, the reflexive pronoun in Tujia can be used as an intensifier, indicating “self, non-other”, but it can also be used to… read more
Man, Lu, Yu Ma and Jeroen van de Weijer 2023 The serial verb construction in TujiaLinguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area 46:1, pp. 72–94 | Article
This paper presents a comprehensive description of the serial verb construction (henceforth SVC) in Tujia. It shows that serial verbs or verb phrases in Tujia are linked by the particle lie 55. lie 55 does not contribute any semantic content to the construction, but only functions as a… read more
Weijer, Jeroen van de, Marjoleine Sloos and Weiyun Wei 2022 The role of word frequency in the L2 acquisition of variable patterns: A case study of the pronunciation of English words with –man by Chinese learnersLinguistics in the Netherlands 2022, Vogels, Jorrig and Sterre Leufkens (eds.), pp. 279–294 | Article
Second language acquisition often involves the acquisition of stable patterns in a target language. Here we investigate how the acquisition of a variable pronunciation pattern, viz. the pronunciation of the semisuffix -man in professional names in English (e.g. policeman, businessman) is related… read more
Man, Lu, Jeroen van de Weijer and Zhengguang Liu 2019 Nominalization and relativization in Tujia: A crosslinguistic perspectiveLinguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area 42:1, pp. 82–109 | Article
This paper presents a preliminary investigation of nominalization and relativization in Tujia from a typological perspective. We show that there are several nominalizers in Tujia, only two of which are multifunctional: ɕi and ɲie. ɕi can function as a nominalizer, a relativizer, a… read more
Hoekstra, Eric, Anne Merkuur, Marjoleine Sloos and Jeroen van de Weijer 2018 Calculating a pattern’s competitive strength: Competition between /æ/ and /ʌ/ in irregular simple pasts and past participles in EnglishThe Mental Lexicon 13:1, pp. 143–157 | Article
This article proposes a measure of the competitive strength of two rival patterns in the domain of a subgroup of irregular verbs in English. There is competition between simple pasts built on the vowels /æ/ and /ʌ/, and the same competition is found in the domain of past participles. As a result… read more
Hulst, Harry van der and Jeroen van de Weijer 2018 Degrees of complexity in phonological segmentsSubstance-based Grammar – The (Ongoing) Work of John Anderson, Böhm, Roger and Harry van der Hulst (eds.), pp. 385–430 | Chapter
In this chapter the authors discuss the representation of degrees of complexity in segmental structure. After exploring several measures of complexity in relation to the notion of markedness, five assumptions concerning phonological primes are listed. Adopting a dependency-based model using unary… read more
Weijer, Jeroen van de 2014 Affricates in English as a natural classAbove and Beyond the Segments: Experimental linguistics and phonetics, Caspers, Johanneke, Yiya Chen, Willemijn Heeren, Jos Pacilly, Niels O. Schiller and Ellen van Zanten (eds.), pp. 350–358 | Article
This paper investigates the role of affricates in the phonotactics of English, and notes that these segments behave differently from stops and differently from fricatives. This is taken as evidence against the proposal that affricates cannot form a natural class by themselves, which is inherent in… read more
Weijer, Jeroen van de and Marjoleine Sloos 2014 The four tones of Mandarin Chinese: Representation and acquisitionLinguistics in the Netherlands 2014, Auer, Anita and Björn Köhnlein (eds.), pp. 180–191 | Article
In this paper we discuss the four tones of Standard (Beijing) Mandarin Chinese. First, we will suggest a proposal for their phonological representation. Then, we discuss the order in which they are acquired in first language acquisition, relating this both to the representations we propose and to… read more
Weijer, Jeroen van de and Marjoleine Sloos 2013 Acquiring markedness constraints: The case of FrenchLinguistics in the Netherlands 2013, Aalberse, Suzanne and Anita Auer (eds.), pp. 188–200 | Article
This paper questions the assumption made in classic Optimality Theory (Prince & Smolensky 1993 [2004]) that markedness constraints are an innate part of Universal Grammar. Instead, we argue that constraints are acquired on the basis of the language data to which L1 learning children are exposed.… read more

This paper provides a preliminary description of the comparative construction in Tujia (northern dialect; NT), an endangered ergative Tibeto-Burman (TB) language spoken in China, in the context of the typologically diverse ways in which comparative meaning is expressed. In mono-clauses in NT,… read more
