The Grammar of Q

This chapter applies the core ideas underlying the ‘Q-based’ account to the analysis of wh-in situ languages. It is shown that wh-in situ languages comprise at least two distinct syntactic types, according to whether the Q adjoins to its sister or not. Following this, it is shown that the semantics developed in chapter 2 for Tlingit can be straightforwardly applied to the semantics of wh-questions and wh-indefinites in both types of wh-in situ language. Finally, the assumptions regarding so-called Intervention Effects are introduced, as well as the analysis that will be assumed throughout the following chapters.

Keywords:   Tlingit, Sinhala, Japanese, Korean, wh-in situ, wh-indefinites, intervention effects, semantics
