The interaction of right dislocation and focalization in Italian and other Romance languages
Prof. Vieri Samek-Lodovici (University College London)
October 26 and 27, 15-17h.
Classroom 210 (B7/030), Facultat de Lletres, UAB
This short course would be based on his recent OUP book (available as open access at link). It would provide a unified analysis of the entire focalization paradigm of Italian, as well as identify some of the most problematic aspects of current analyses. Crucially, one lecture would center on the differences between Marginalization and Right Dislocation and the tests that distinguish them. A few important differences between Italian and Catalan RD would also be considered.
