Kratzer’s effect in the nominal domain
Fake indexicals in Dutch and German
Fake indexicals are 1/2 person pronouns that do not have a fixed referent but vary over a set. It has been shown that fake indexicals are subject to morphological restrictions imposed by the verbal morphology. In this paper, we show that fake indexicals in the nominal domain are subject to similar morphological restrictions. Only if the morphology is invariant under 1↔3 person permutation does the sloppy reading occur. This is studied both theoretically and empirically within the Dutch dialectological space.
Keywords: fake indexicals, sloppy identity, verbal morphology, possessive morphology, paradigms, Limburgian, Dutch, German, English
