Abstract

Pylkk&#228;nen (2002, 2008) proposes that cross-linguistically there are two types of applicative constructions: high applicatives selecting a VP as their complement and low applicatives requiring a DP in their complement position. In this study, we will show that Pazar Laz presents evidence for a third type of applicative construction, which we call <i>higher</i> applicatives. We will argue that these applicatives specifically select an agentive vP as their complement, where the applied argument that is introduced by the applied head is coindexed with an implicit agent introduced in Spec, vP. Keywords: applicatives; Pazar Laz
