About the Project

Project term: April, 2019–March, 2022

The present project explores some issues related to the hierarchy of sentences and clauses, which is proved to be a characteristic of “Altaic-type” languages as a result of the previous phase of the project (ILCAA joint research project titled “Typological Study on ‘Altaic-type’ Languages”). The research aims to reveal the typological characteristics of “Altaic-type” languages. The main topics of the project are as follows: (i) typology on the construction of the predicates of the sentence: insubordination out of nominal clauses and the issue of finiteness; (ii) management of a subject according to different levels of clause hierarchy; (iii) management of tense according to different levels of clause hierarchy; and (iv) semantics and syntax of nominal phrases according to different levels of clause hierarchy.
