Chapter 7. A case of disagreement
On plural reduplicating particles in Hungarian
The chapter discusses the so-called Hungarian reduplicating particle verb construction that has generated some interest in the pertinent generative literature on Hungarian. This literature is divided over whether reduplicating particles can bear plural morphology in the presence of a third person plural oblique associate or not: some accept and some reject the resulting agreeing reduplicating particle verb construction, thus creating a par excellence context of data inconsistency. The chapter offers a detailed and critical overview of the literature, and presents some novel arguments in an effort to find a paraconsistent solution to this problem within the framework of the p-model of Kertész and Rákosi (2012). This solution rests and on the claim that the plural and the non-plural reduplicating particle verb constructions are radically different in their grammar, since the particle only acts as a pronominal in the case of the former construction type. The pronominal use of the particle is a marked option, rendering the agreeing reduplicating particle verb construction a marked phenomenon of Hungarian grammar.
