ven. 24/03/2017 Atelier Morphosyntaxe -- Imperatives & commands Magdalena Lemus: Imperatives in Yukuna (Arawak)
14h-16h
ISH, Ennat Léger

This talk will present the encoding of imperatives in Yukuna, a North Amazonian Arawak language of Colombia. Yukuna has a sentential imperative, with no overt morphological marking, used with second person singular and plural. In contrast to this, Yukuna has a dedicated verbal suffix for third person imperatives -ré, and a prohibitive -niña. The main morphosyntactic properties of these constructions will be discussed, as well as their specific semantics. Finally, other strategies used in the expression of directives will be addressed, notably the case of suffix -chí, often associated with first person directives.
