Sample text

It is assumed that the movement of one element to Spec-CP is a Universal phenomenon. 1. Introduction The Sinhala language, which is of Indo-Aryan origin, is most widely spoken in Sri-Lanka. Though Sinhala is said to belong to the class of Nominative-Accusative languages in Typology, it exhibits default agreement in complex predicates as well as agreement with the noun that occurs in a conjunctive verb, as in Hindi. However, present-day Sinhala, interestingly, shows a mix of shared characteristics with Tamil.

FP Spec F’ TP Spec F Fin T’ NegP T hai AspP vP Asp rahaa Spec raajiiv v’ VP Spec dillii Neg nahiiN v V’ V jaa In the clause structure (14c), the V moves to v and then to Asp to incorporate the aspectual morpheme. Once it gets the aspectual morphology, the complex (v + Asp) moves to Neg and lands to the right of Neg3. From there, the verbal complex plus negation (NEG+verb) moves to T where it takes the tense morpheme. In this way, the sentence gets the desired order.

In Sinhala, rightward movement of the whelements occurs only when there is a single wh-phrase in the simple interrogatives, as in the following examples (1-5)1. 1. ’ 2. tj ti mEri-tə αrαdənα-kərə-nu-ætte t t Mary-Acc invitation-do-PRT-has-Fut kawu-dək? who-Q ‘Who t t will invite Mary ? 3. mEri ti kanu-ætt-e monəwα-dəi? ’ 4. ’ 5. ti kæmə-de-nu-ætt-e mEri u:ran-tə Mary pig-Pl-Acc t food-give-PRT-has-Fut-Foc kesE-dəi? ’ I have indicated the syntactic movements of the interrogative sentence (1) in the tree diagram below (Syntactic tree 1).
