Abstract:

The dissertation provides a systematic description of English and Afrikaans
verbal pseudo-coordination and a formal analysis couched in the Minimalist
program. It has implications for the way narrow syntax conjoins categories
and features and argues for a role for syntactic operations below the level
of the head. The dissertation also has consequences for the nature of
headmovement, excorporation and its triggers.

Verbal pseudo-coordination typically involves an aspectual verb coordinated
with a lexical verb. This dissertation argues that verbal
pseudo-coordination is not a unitary phenomenon and can involve
coordination of verbal heads rather than phrasal categories. The analysis
allows a treatment of pseudocoordination as ordinary coordination rather
than as subordination.

The typology of verbal pseudo-coordination is extended with a discussion of
reduplicative coordination and Afrikaaans pseudo-coordination with verbs of
posture. It is shown that coordination can target features at or below the
level of the head and that this allows strong conceptions of the Coordinate
Structure Constraint and the Law of Coordination of Likes to be maintained.
