Abstract


The talk investigates the various manifestations of the "What all …" question construction in four languages: (varieties of) English, German, Mandarin Chinese, and Hungarian – focusing on the latter two. 

This time, apart from giving a sketch of the accounts of the syntactic derivation of the English and German construction, I will propose analyses for the Mandarin and Hungarian variant, which (I believe) again share certain properties responsible for both the syntactic shape and the interpretation of these sentences, and have a lot to do with how the pronominal elements behave in them. 


The essential points of these analyses can be summarized this way:

(1) German makes use of a quantifier adjoined to the quantified NP, from where the NP may optionally excorporate – this is how they may end up remotely from each other.

(2) In English, no such excorporation is possible, hence wh- all moves as a unit, invariably.        

(3) Hungarian, where bare ‘restrictor’ pronouns morphologically combine with various quantifiers (", $, free-choice: minden-ki ["-pers] = ‘everyone’, vala-ki [$-pers] = ‘someone’, bár-ki [freech.-pers] = ‘anyone’, cf. ?-ki [?-pers] = ‘who’)), uses a compound quantificational pronoun to form the construction under scrutiny, e.g. [?-ki-[minden-ki]] ‘who-everyone’, and places it in the usual wh-position (= spec,FocP in this language). Because of the morphological nature of the compound, no excorporation is possible, hence no remoteness effect of the German type.

(4) In Chinese, similar associations between bare restrictor pronouns like shei ‘x-person’, shenme ‘x-thing’  and quantifiers like the UQ dou, or a Q-op in spec,CP, have usually been analysed as a syntactic dependency. In our cases, however, such a dependency between dou and the bare pronominal would be ill-formed, instead dou adverbially modifies the clause here, and is responsible for a modifying part to the restriction on the variable to the effect that only exhaustive answers will be congruent with the question thus formed. Question-formation, meanwhile, proceeds along the standard route: a Q-operator in spec,C binds the variable provided by the in situ wh-pronoun) – independently of what dou does.
