The predicates of Luiseño clausal adjuncts
The predicates of Luiseño clausal adjuncts are informationally unique among the predicates of its subordinate clause types in ensuring access to their temporal properties; they are morphologically unique in that this characteristic coexists with properties of form otherwise associated with predicates whose temporal properties are not accessible. The character of this uniqueness is consistent with two facts: (1) A clausal adjunct’s temporality must be determined relative to that of the clause to which it is adjoined; and (2) if the subject of a clausal adjunct is not given internal to the clause, it is determined relative to that of the clause to which it is adjoined.
