Poster Presentation for "Using Phasal Syntax to Make Generalizations in Manchu Vowel Harmony"

posted on 2021-05-18, 16:16 authored by Jack Isaac Rabinovitch, Baoqing Qian
This poster was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
This poster provides an analysis of Manchu vowel harmony and argues that mismatch in vowel harmony for imperfective and perfective heads is caused by a phasal imperfective head, which requires that its complement, the spell-out domain, be sent to PF before more material can attach to the stem. We use this analysis to create a simplified set of generalizations for pedagogical purposes, hoping to streamline the internalization process of acquiring vowel harmony for heritage learners.
