Wiki Version:
<p>Many languages have pairs of additive markers that exhibit a common morphological core: Italian <em>anche</em> vs <em>neanche</em>, Romanian <em>si</em> vs <em>nici</em>, Serbian <em>i</em> vs <em>ni</em>, Spanish <em>y</em> vs <em>ni</em>, etc.</p> <p>In this poster we will focus on Romanian and do the following:</p> <p>(i) Offer a uniform analysis that has both markers making the same underlying contribution, namely additivity.</p> <p>(ii) Derive the negative polarity behavior of the negative particle nici as a result of the prefix ni, used elsewhere to create neg-words.</p> <p>(iii) Derive the other uses of nici (scalar particle, neg-word particle).</p> <p>We will conclude with a number of open questions and directions for future research.</p>
