This article presents an Optimality Theoretic analysis of the agreement phenomena in sign languages, which predicts that verb agreement should arise once children have acquired fluency in signs both physically and in computation for selecting the most optimal form according to the universal constraints appropriately ranked for sign languages. This prediction is supported by the observation that verb agreement emerges from within children who have been exposed only to signs without agreement. The discussion also demonstrates that the phenomenon unique to sign languages is based on the mechanism of human language externalization that is common across modality. Verb agreement is a necessary consequence of the externalization of human language with universal constraints appropriately ranked for sign languages.

Building on Kazuko Inoue's studies on Japanese sentences with a prepositional subject, tThe present article argues that the nominative case particle ga is semantically vacuous, even where a ga-marked phrase is indispensable or the ga-marked phrase is construed as exhaustively listing. Potential sentences require at least one instance of ga-marked phrase because they can ascribe a property to an argument only by function application. The exhaustive listing reading arises by conversational implicature when the presence of a ga-marked phrase signals that a topic phrase is being avoided. A semantic account of subject honorification is presented whereby the honorification only concerns the semantic content of the predicate, and does not involve agreement with the subject. It is also shown that sentences with a prepositional subject allow zibun only as a long-distance anaphor, which indicates that they do lack a subject with the nominative Case.

Movement into a Theta-Position: Evidence from the Middle
Noriko Kawasaki
University of Massachusetts Occasional Papers in Linguistics
GLSA, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
24, 103-129
2000



The article demonstrates that the subject of middle sentences in English is moved from a theta-position to another theta-position, but also that movement between two theta-positions is not always possible. This means that the theta-criterion as a descriptive generalization is partially correct and partially wrong. It then proposes that movement into a theta-position is possible if the moved phrase enters into a predication relation in the derived position, rather than being assigned a semantic role anchored to event interpretation, and examines its consequences.
