New Insights on the Question Particle "a" in Sardinian
Mensching, Guido (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

Data: 2015
Resum: The article analyzes the Sardinian question particle a in yes/no "special" questions. Following Obenauer (2004, 2006), this particle is taken to mark special interrogative clauses that cannot be answered with yes or no as they denote invitations or requests, express surprise, are biased towards an answer, or are rhetorical questions. Due to its additional focalization properties, the question particle a is analysed as a head merged in Foc° and moved to one of Obenauer’s SpIntPs (special interrogative phrases). Furthermore, as in a-questions nominal constituents are obligatorily dislocated, the author argues that DPs are extracted to a functional projection beneath FocP before the remnant TP is moved to [spec, FocP].
