Abstract:

This book offers a new perspective on natural language predicates by
analyzing data from the Plains Cree language. Contrary to traditional
understanding, Cree verbal complexes are syntactic constructs composed
of morphemes as syntactic objects that are subject to structurally
defined constraints, such as c-command. Tomio Hirose illustrates this
in his study of VP syntax, event semantics, morphology-syntax
mappings, unaccusativity, noun incorporation, and valency-reducing
phenomena.

Hirose demonstrates that what is known about aspectual properties of
well-studied languages is also true of the less-studied Cree
language. His findings significantly advance the study of syntax and
semantics in both natural language predicates and in the verbal
complexes in polysynthetic languages. Synthesizing the latest in
linguistic theory and an array of empirical evidence, this book will
be accessible to theoretical linguists, Americanists, and students of
the Cree language.
