Poster Presentation for "Grammar of Honorification"

posted on 2021-05-20, 23:32 authored by Deepak Alok
This poster was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
Magahi, an Indo-Aryan language, shows a rich honorification system (the encoding of “social status” in grammar) along several interrelated dimensions. First, second person elements show three values of honorification: nonhonorific (NH), honorific (H) and high honorific (HH)). Second, not only second person pronouns but third person pronouns also morphologically mark the honorificity of the referent with respect to the speaker. Moreover, different third person pronouns can appear in the same clause.
