Sample text

The following example illustrates a third person case: (39) Apa-n-man. Carry- 3s- COND '(S/he) would bring= (Cusihuaman 1976/2001: 170) Before presenting the paradigm of object agreement marking, I would like to briefly discuss the view of subject agreement morphology that I will adopt. I take the position that subject agreement in Southern Quechua is verbal morphology and that it is not of a pronominal nature, namely; it does not correspond to an incorporated pronoun. There are at least two reasons to take this view.

As a result of this ranking constraint, third person objects, which are ranked the lowest in the constraint, do not appear morphologically marked on verbs. This includes the case in which the subjects are third person. 1-n. Mariya-Foc/EVID (slhe-Acc) see-0-3S 'Mariya sees (him/her)' I take this to indicate that the contrast between overt and null objects in third person is of a similar nature as the one between overt and null subjects. As we will see in the last chapter of this book, null objects receive their interpretation as continuing topics from an operator that establishes an Agree relation with them.

In cases in which the particle appears to have scope over the whole TP, as in sentence (15) and (21) below, one possible analysis ls for the Focus head to establish an Agree relation with the whole TP that ls spelled out only in the last word of the constituent. Another possible analysis is for the TP to be merged in the Spec of the relevant Focus head and for the last word of the constituent to receive the marking in an analysis similar to that proposed by Julien (2002: 100-1 02) for head-final languages.
