posterposted on 07.05.2021, 17:20 by Imanol Suárez-Palma
Although the reflexive pronoun 'se' is obligatory in middle constructions in Ibero-Romance languages such as Spanish or Catalan, it has been described as optional in these contexts in Asturian, a minority language in North West Spain. Here, I show evidence supporting the idea that the reflexive is the spell-out form of a Voice head encoding the participation of a generic implicit agent in the event.
