mar. 06/11/2018 Séminaire DTT - Conférence
Towards a typology of covert causee causatives
Albert Alvarez (Université de Sonora, Mexique)
14h - 15h30
ISH - salle Ennat Léger

In this talk, I will present a research project focused on how languages of the world can express a situation of indirect causation (have someone do something) in which the causee is left implicit, that is to say, the causee is not expressed but still implied (have (someone) do something, have something done (by someone)). Here, I will explore and propose a formal typology of the constructions that can be used cross-linguistically for expressing a covert causee causation, considering at this stage two major features: i) the presence or absence of a causative marking in the construction, and ii) the number of valency-changing markers present in the construction (zero, one or several markers). On the basis of this preliminary typology, new insights will also be addressed in order to enlarge the scope of this research, in particular concerning the semantics of the participants involved in the covert causee causation as well as its relation to the phenomena of voice combination and voice ambivalence.
