<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Aniko Csirmaz

Crow, a Siouan language, exhibits an interesting phenomenon called noun incorporation. This is where noun and nominal structures are brought into the verbal structure. In this language, this is a highly productive and complex process. Therefore, I examine four approaches to incorporation, which are morphological, head movement, autolexical syntax, and phrasal movement, in order to determine which approach best accounts for the incorporation phenomena seen in this language.
