Hartmann, Jutta M. and Caroline Heycock 2019 Restrictions on “Low” person agreement in Dutch specificational copular constructionsLinguistics in the Netherlands 2019, Berns, Janine and Elena Tribushinina (eds.), pp. 130–146
Agreement between the verb and its arguments as a predominant phenomenon in language has received major attention in the theoretical literature. One specific aspect under discussion concerns differences between number and person agreement, with the latter being the more restricted one (restricted… read more | Article
Hartmann, Jutta M. 2018 A focus analysis of apparent predicational cleftsNon-prototypical clefts, Karssenberg, Lena, Karen Lahousse, Béatrice Lamiroy, Stefania Marzo and Ana Drobnjakovic (eds.), pp. 121–143
This paper discusses a specific subclass of English it-clefts posited in the theoretical literature, so-called predicational clefts. The main point of the paper is to show that there is no need to postulate such a separate class. Predicational clefts look special because of the narrow focus on the… read more | Article
Hartmann, Jutta M. and Caroline Heycock 2017 Variation in copular agreement in Insular ScandinavianSyntactic Variation in Insular Scandinavian, Thráinsson, Höskuldur, Caroline Heycock, Hjalmar P. Petersen and Zakaris Svabo Hansen (eds.), pp. 233–276
This paper explores the syntax of agreement in Insular Scandinavian in copular clauses with two potential goals for agreement. Data from three production experiments – one in Faroese and two in Icelandic – establish several new facts. First, in both languages agreement with the second nominal (DP2)… read more | Chapter
Hartmann, Jutta M., Veronika Hegedűs and Balázs Surányi 2013 Pseudoclefts in HungarianApproaches to Hungarian: Volume 13: Papers from the 2011 Lund conference, Brandtler, Johan, Valéria Molnár and Christer Platzack (eds.), pp. 67–96
Based on novel data from Hungarian, this paper makes the case that in at least some languages specificational pseudocleft sentences must receive a ‘what-you-see-is-what-you-get’ syntactic analysis. More specifically, it is argued that the clefted constituent is the subject of predication… read more | Article
Gergel, Remus and Jutta M. Hartmann 2009 Experiencers with (un)willingness: A raising analysis of German ‘Wollen’Advances in Comparative Germanic Syntax, Alexiadou, Artemis, Jorge Hankamer, Thomas McFadden, Justin Nuger and Florian Schäfer (eds.), pp. 327–356
The paper contributes to the raising vs. control debate with respect to modals through (A) novel data; (B) the investigation of a domain in which it has proven particularly problematic: volitional modality. We analyze oblique arguments of experiencer verbs embedded under German wollen ‘want’ and… read more | Article
