about

This book offers a new perspective on natural language predicates by analyzing data from the Plains Cree language. Contrary to traditional understanding, Cree verbal complexes are syntactic constructs composed of morphemes as syntactic objects that are subject to structurally defined constraints, such as c-command. Tomio Hirose illustrates this in his study of vP syntax, event semantics, morphology-syntax mappings, unaccusativity, noun incorporation, and valency-reducing phenomena.
Tomio Hirose received his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 2001. Having spent a year at the University of Leipzig as a research associate, he is currently affiliated with Matsue National College of Technology, Japan.
