Krivochen, Diego Gabriel 2023 Raising to object: A graph-theoretic analysisEvolutionary Linguistic Theory 5:2, pp. 128–161 | Article
In this paper we provide an introduction to a set of tools for syntactic analysis based on graph theory, and apply them to the study of some properties of English accusativus cum infinitivo constructions, more commonly known as raising to object or exceptional case marking structures. We focus… read more
Krivochen, Diego Gabriel 2021 Mixed computation: Grammar up and down the Chomsky hierarchyFormal Language Theory and its Relevance for Linguistic Analysis, Krivochen, Diego Gabriel (ed.), pp. 215–244 | Article
Proof-theoretic models of grammar are based on the view that an explicit characterization of a language comes in the form of the recursive enumeration of strings in that language. That recursive enumeration is carried out by a procedure which strongly generates a set of structural descriptions Σ… read more

This article proposes a new method for analyzing and comparing general linear sequences with the minimum prior knowledge on the sequences needed. Sequence analysis is a broad problem studied by various fields from sociology and computer security to linguistics or biology. The method presented… read more
Krivochen, Diego Gabriel and Ľudmila Lacková 2020 Iconicity in syntax and the architecture of linguistic theoryStudies in Language 44:1, pp. 95–131 | Article
Linguistic iconicity has been studied since ancient times (e.g., Plato’s Cratylus, see Cooper & Hutchinson 1997). Within modern grammatical description, this notion was mostly developed by Jakobson and Benveniste; nowadays, iconicity in language is even being experimentally tested (e.g., Blasi… read more
Kosta, Peter and Diego Gabriel Krivochen 2014 Flavors of movement: Revisiting the A/A′ distinctionMinimalism and Beyond: Radicalizing the interfaces, Kosta, Peter, Steven L. Franks, Teodora Radeva-Bork and Lilia Schürcks (eds.), pp. 236–266 | Article
In this paper we revisit a distinction that has been core to GB and Minimalist approaches to the property of displacement in natural languages: the opposition between A(rgumental) and A′ (non-argumental) positions, as sources and targets of the general operation Move-α. Minimalism brought an… read more
