Wiki Version:
<p>This talk analyzes pronominal competition and its pragmatic consequences in Scottish Gaelic (Celtic). In cases of competition cross-linguistically, use of a particular pronoun can trigger pragmatic effects like negative appraisal (N-effects). Although Scottish Gaelic exhibits a superficially similar pattern of competition and negative appraisal, I show that existing accounts based on referential potential (Sichel & Wiltschko 2020) and structure (Patel-Grosz & Grosz 2017) are unable to capture the Scottish Gaelic pattern. Instead, I argue that negative appraisal in Scottish Gaelic stems from the absence of positive appraisal, signaled via use of exempt anaphors. Apparent N-effects in Scottish Gaelic are, then, better characterized as not-P-effects.</p> <p>The file Bossi_SuB25_handout.pdf is the handout for my talk.
