Chamoreau, Claudine 2019 Grammaticalization of the linking devices with ka in PurepechaDiverse Scenarios of Syntactic Complexity, Álvarez González, Albert, Zarina Estrada-Fernández and Claudine Chamoreau (eds.), pp. 139–166 | Chapter
This paper describes, in synchrony, the use, form, and position of the linking devices with ka in coordinating phrases and clauses and in subordinate clauses.

First, it appears in noun phrases. In this context, =kánfunctions as a case marker and is encliticised to a noun… read more
Chamoreau, Claudine 2016 Non-finite chain-medial clauses on the continuum of finiteness in PurepechaFiniteness and Nominalization, Chamoreau, Claudine and Zarina Estrada-Fernández (eds.), pp. 83–104 | Article
On the continuum of finiteness that can characterize clauses, Purepecha is one of the languages in which the predicates of both independent and dependent clauses are usually finite. Some non-finite dependent clauses have been observed. The predicate is converted to a non-finite form by means of the… read more
Chamoreau, Claudine and Zarina Estrada-Fernández 2016 Finiteness and nominalization: An overviewFiniteness and Nominalization, Chamoreau, Claudine and Zarina Estrada-Fernández (eds.), pp. 1–10 | Article
Léglise, Isabelle and Claudine Chamoreau 2013 Variation and change in contact settingsThe Interplay of Variation and Change in Contact Settings, Léglise, Isabelle and Claudine Chamoreau (eds.), pp. 1–20 | Article
This paper introduces two linguistic fields dealing with language change: contact linguistics and sociolinguistic research on variation. It argues that although there is no language change without variation, linguistic variation is still an opaque area, a blind spot, for most contact-induced… read more
