Information structure in the Neo-Aramaic dialect of Telkepe
2018 (English)In: Information Structure in Lesser-described Languages: Studies in prosody and syntax / [ed] Evangelia Adamou, Katharina Haude and Martine Vanhove, Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2018, p. 297-328Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper describes the expression of information structure in the North-Eastern Neo-Aramaic dialect of Telkepe, a town in northern Iraq. Based on the author’s fieldwork data, it looks at the various ways in which information structure is given linguistic expression in the dialect, in particular indexing on the verb, differential object flagging, word order, and the position of the nuclear stress. It is then shown that the findings for Telkepe provide supportive evidence for some of the universals of information structure proposed by Gundel (1988).
