The MULL-lab will be meeting on Wednesday, February 16th at 4pm. Lisa Travis will be presenting the second part of Event structure through the lens of Malagasy morphology. Please see the abstract below.


This talk will present a particular view of event structure as suggested by the morphological breakdown of particular verb forms in Malagasy.  The proposal is that Malagasy has morphemes for v (state, inchoative, cause), a verbal base (V), as well as an intervening functional category, Inner Aspect, that encodes telicity. Further, an argument will be made that Achievements are formed by merging a verbal base with a telic Inner Aspect and a stative v.
