Dimensions of variation
The inflected construction in the dialect of Delia (Caltanissetta)
This paper provides an overview of the different dimensions of variation found in the Inflected Construction (IC) (cf. Cardinaletti and Giusti 2001, 2003) arising with motion verbs in most Sicilian dialects. It does so by discussing data from the dialect of Delia (Caltanissetta) at face value with the dialect of Marsala (Trapani). The micro-variation emerging from the discussion challenges Cruschina’s (2013) morphomic account; while it is easily captured by Cardinaletti and Giusti’s (to appear) hypothesis that a semi-functional V1 fills a remerged functional head (t-T, c-C). Merger in t or c is not only restricted to lexically specified forms of V1 but, in given feature combinations, also to lexically specified forms of V2 in T or C.
Keywords: inflected construction, pseudo-coordination, sicilian dialects, cartographic syntax, motion verbs, restructuring verbs
