Algonquian 49 at Université de Montréal

I will be presenting my ongoing work on the VOS/VSO alternation in Ojibwe at the The 49th Algonquian Conference at the Université de Montréal on October 29th. I argue that the alternation can be accounted for by the generalization that the highest obviative marked argument be moved to a projection (likely the aspectual projection) the middle field. I show all other movements are ungrammatical, as they violate relativized minimality.
