Abstract:

This book provides a detailed study of nominalizing patterns in Malagasy
(Austronesian) and discusses the broader theoretical issues that arise from
these patterns. It explores new and original fieldwork data drawn from the
largely unexplored domain of Malagasy deverbal nominals. Offering new insights
to long-standing puzzles in the derivation of argument-structure, referential,
and clausal nominals, the book promotes a single structure-building mechanism,
which allows nominalizers to attach at different heights in the clausal spine
to derive nominals with different morphosyntactic properties.In addition, it
provides a novel analysis of participant nominalizations, showing that they
are derived through the same mechanism that derives relative clauses, and thus
setting the stage for new and exciting research directions.
