V+N Order

Abstract

This chapter investigates instances of NI in which the order V+N is found. Languages with V+N order constitute apparent counter-examples to the proposal put forth here. What I will show is that the IN in some of the languages under consideration is larger than in instances of prototypical NI. This will be obvious in the Niuean examples discussed below, but not for Mapudungun and Upriver Halkomelem, where the IN genuinely appears bare. In all cases, however, I show that asymmetric c-command holds between the verbal root and the IN, thus allowing the LCA to establish a V+N order for the NI constructions here.
