Abstract:

San Lucas Quiaviní Zapotec, an endangered and little-examined indigenous
language of Mexico, shows a range of syntactic and morphological phenomena
incompatible with standard Minimalist accounts of verb movement: verbs and
clearly phrasal constituents behave identically in a number of syntactic
constructions, and the ordering of verbal morphemes is problematic for
standard assumptions of verbal head movement.

This work proposes a VP-remnant raising account for these phenomena,
motivated by Kayne's (1992) Antisymmetry program. This work also examines
consequences of phrasal remnant movement for negation constructions,
question formation; and the interpretation of tense, aspect, and mood.
