Ledgeway, Adam 2023 Parametric variation in differential object marking in Italo-RomanceDifferential Object Marking in Romance: Towards microvariation, Irimia, Monica Alexandrina and Alexandru Mardale (eds.), pp. 267–314 | Chapter
This article provides an exhaustive review of the known variation found in the distribution of differerential object marking across the dialects of Italy, including those of central and northern Italy, in order to identify the relevant dimensions of microvariation in relation to information… read more
This chapter undertakes an overview of the structural conditions regulating the distribution of a phonological fortition process, raddoppiamento fonosintattico “phonosyntactic doubling”, in the Calabrian dialect of Cosenza, focusing on some particularly striking cases which also reveal the role… read more
Cruschina, Silvio, Adam Ledgeway and Eva-Maria Remberger 2019 The dialects of Italy at the interfacesItalian Dialectology at the Interfaces, Cruschina, Silvio, Adam Ledgeway and Eva-Maria Remberger (eds.), pp. 1–39 | Chapter
This paper undertakes a synchronic comparison of auxiliary selection across a number of different Romance varieties that show how minimal differences among otherwise highly homogenous ‘systems’ can be used to investigate microvariation along the diachronic axis in order to better understand what… read more
Mavrogiorgos, Marios and Adam Ledgeway 2019 Chapter 17. Non-verbal predication and clitics in AromanianRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 15: Selected papers from 'Going Romance' 30, Frankfurt, Feldhausen, Ingo, Martin Elsig, Imme Kuchenbrandt and Mareike Neuhaus (eds.), pp. 333–351 | Chapter
This paper discusses predicational structures in some Aromanian varieties which involve PP or AP predicates combining with the copula be. In these structures the internal argument and subject of be is cross-referenced by an accusative clitic, as long as it is 3rd person and a topic. However,… read more
The present article considers the syntactic constraints operative on the distribution of a phonological fortition process, raddoppiamento fonosintattico ‘phonosyntactic doubling’, in the Calabrian dialect of Cosenza. It is shown that the relevant locality restrictions are best understood, not in… read more
Ledgeway, Adam 2017 Chapter 2. Parameters in Romance adverb agreementAdjective Adverb Interfaces in Romance, Hummel, Martin and Salvador Valera (eds.), pp. 47–80 | Chapter
Many Romance varieties are known to employ adjectives in adverbial function. This paper explores the parameters involved in the distribution of agreement of adjectival manner adverbs across Romance. Agreement is shown to be sensitive to specific structural configurations which can ultimately be… read more
