Upon my return from St. Petersburg, Russia, I will be giving a talk on “Word Order and the Structure of Eventive Nominalizations in Russian” at FASL 27 at Stanford University. Looking forward to the event!
Yesterday, I gave a talk titled “Eventive Nominalizations in Russian and the DP/NP Debate” at the Formal Approaches to Russian Linguistics, Moscow.
The gist of the talk: Russian nominalizations cannot be used to argue either for the presence of DP in Russian or for its absence (as has been done in the previous literature); instead, all nominalization-specific morphosyntax happens lower in the nominal structure.
Contact me for the handout.
