Series Title: Approaches to Hungarian 12
Description:

This volume contains eight papers, all presented at the 9th International
Conference on the Structure of Hungarian (University of Debrecen, 2009),
addressing a great variety of topics in the syntax, morphology, phonology,
and semantics of Hungarian, and also offering discussion of related
phenomena in other languages. The volume includes a syntax-based analysis
of Hungarian external causatives in the framework of the Minimalist Program
(MP); argumentation for the lack of phonological or acoustic evidence for
secondary stress in Hungarian; an MP approach to a Hungarian modal
construction with a counterfactual, reproaching reading; empirical arguments
for assuming that in the case of embedded sentences factivity is irrelevant
for syntax, and clauses are differentiated by referentiality; a comprehensive
semantic account of result states in Hungarian; a claim that certain
paradigmatic/morphophonological variation in the Hungarian verbal paradigm
is caused by conflicting paradigmatic pressures; a purely interface-based MP
account of the syntax of identificational focus in Hungarian; and an analysis
of arbitrarily interpreted null subjects in Hungarian with third person, plural
agreement on the finite and infinitival verb. The volume will be of interest not
just to scholars working on Hungarian, but to a general audience of generative
linguists.
