Non-verbal Predicates in K'ichee' Mayan: An LFG Approach

Lachlan Duncan


Link to pdf of paper

Although the most important types of non-verbal predicates (NVP) are outlined in the descriptive grammars of the K'ichee'an languages, no encompassing typology let alone a formal analysis of NVPs has ever been published. This paper is an attempt to remedy this using K'ichee' Mayan as the data source with original data. The core types of NVPs are presented and constituent structures are proposed. The grammatical function, function theta, is proposed to account for the complements of monovalent, intransitive NVPs.
