Inflected infinitives in Galician
This study uses an audio-questionnaire, supplemented by spoken corpus data, to probe the acceptability of Galician inflected infinitives in different syntactic contexts. Our results reveal that inflected infinitives in Galician are acceptable in a different range of contexts than in closely related Portuguese, and also in a broader range of contexts than previously reported for this language. Intra-speaker variation appears to correlate most strongly with L1 (Spanish/Galician) and gender, with a trend for men and L1 Spanish speakers to be more accepting of the inflected infinitive.
Keywords: Galician, inflected infinitives, control, finiteness, gender
