ABSTRACT

Summary and questions arising 7.0 INTRODUCTION This study has focused on a range of West em Naskapi constructions which contain a Conjunct verb form. In Chapters 3, 4 and 5, I have argued in favor of the hypothesis that, wherever a non-Neg CP projection is motivated (by any lexical item contained in the initial lexical array of a derivation), a verb bearing Conjunct morphology uniquely meets the checking requirements of the head of that projection. Thus, the constructions which have been the focus of this study are more precisely described as constructions which contain at least one non-Neg CP projection.
