Exclamatives and temporal nominalizations in Austronesian
Two functions commonly fulfilled by nominalization are exclamative formation and temporal subordination. This article examines the morphology and syntax of these types of nominalizations across a wide range of Austronesian languages. I argue that the commonality between these two functions is found in the presuppositionality (both real and accommodated) involved in their interpretation. Special attention is paid to the mixed nominal-verbal properties of these constructions while offering evidence that nominalization can be a process which applies at several levels within the syntax.
