Sample text

In the syntactic tree (1), the Accusative Case is checked at the outer Spec-v*. The rightward movement of the wh-phrase kα-tə-də for scope (syntactic tree 1) occurs after assignment of the accusative Case by the verb αrαdənα-kərə-nu-ætt-e (discussion with Nirmalngshu Mukherji). The lower copy t of the wh-phrase binds the moved wh-phrase kæ-tə-də, hence it is a variable as in sentence [mEri αrαdənα-kərə-nu-ætt-e ohu-təi […. kαtə-dəi] [whomi is such that [Mary will invite himi]]. The wh-phrase that is moved to the right end of the clause in the example (6) cannot be assigned 54 Chandrika Maliyagoda a Case as the copy t left by the wh-phrase kα-tə-də is already Case marked by the transitive verb αrαdənα-kərə-nu-ætt-e.

The question particle də, I assume, is internally merged IM (Move) at the root of the tree to any phrase that it moves up with. Internally merged question particle də leaves copies for reconstruction and moves up to Spec-CP to mark Scope. The question particle də in Sinhala, I argue, cannot be externally merged which generates argument structure. It may be noted here that the Merger can take place only in overt syntax. The clitic də, in that case, has to be merged internally to the wh-stem kæ-tə- in order to make the movement of the wh-stem to Spec-CP possible.

8. ’ 9. ]] Mary bus-Obl. ’ The examples discussed so far in this paper involve a one wh-phrase. In the next section, I shall discuss the characteristics of the wh-phrases/wh-stems when two wh-phrases occur in simple interrogatives and the status of the question particle də in such cases. There is required in establishing some critical evidence for my arguments on Sinhala. 3. Interrogatives with two wh-phrases In Sinhala, when two wh-elements are involved in simple interrogatives, the language behaves differently from what I have discussed so far, and in this section, I shall discuss some of the differences, which are important to explain the behaviour of Sinhala language with wh- in a full manner.
