Project: A comparative study of alternating presentational constructions in Dutch, English and Italian.

2016-10-01 – 2021-07-31

Abstract

This project investigates the functional range of and the alternation between four types of presentational constructions (prosodic inversion, syntactic inversion, syntactic inversion with filler insertion and syntactic split) in Dutch, English and Italian. The constructions are studied both from a language-specific and a contrastive perspective, using magnitude estimation tasks administered online through a crowdsourcing platform.
