PhD Project

My dissertation, part of project D04: The role of information structure in sentence formation and construal: a frame-based approach, investigates how information structure and morphosyntax interact in Tagalog. I will attempt to contribute to the understanding of marked syntactic constructions that are said to reflect information-structural aspects. To this end, I will use both written and spoken data (elicited during field work in Manila) to investigate how these constructions are used and what information-structural notions they (can) code. Then, building on this, I will attempt to give an account of selected phenomena using frames.
