Aspects of argument structure acquisition in Inuktitut / Shanley E.M. Allen.

Title: Aspects of argument structure acquisition in Inuktitut / Shanley E.M. Allen.
Author(s): Allen, Shanley E. M.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishers
Abstract: Focuses on Tarramiut, Inuktitut sub-dialect spoken on Ungava Peninsula. Argues that several aspects of Inuktitut make it ideal language in which to study language acquisition: its polysynthetic structure, its ergative case-marking system, and its prolific nominal and verbal inflections. Very little research has been carried out on any of these areas. Author focuses primarily on three argument structure-changing operations relevant in terms of Inuktitut's polysynthetic structure: passive, causative and noun incorporation.
