Meeting Description:

Xavier Villalba (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona): 'La inversión de predicado
y la estructura informativa en el SDet'

En esta charla se defiende la hipótesis de que la arquitectura del SDet
reproduce la de la oración también por lo que respecta a la estructura
informativa. Para ello me centraré en las construcciones lo alto de la casa y el
idiota de Juan y mostraré que contamos con abundantes indicios que apuntan hacia
una estructura sujeto-predicado con ascenso del predicado a un SFoc, lo cual
produce una partición del SDet en foco (el predicado) y comentario (el sujeto).
Ello nos permite dar cuenta de numerosos datos en gran medida no descritos, como
por ejemplo las restricciones referenciales sobre el sujeto de estas
construcciones. Finalmente, mostraremos que el análisis predice (correctamente)
una clara diferencia entre el ascenso del predicado en estas construcciones y la
inversión de predicado de las lenguas germánicas.

such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
