Toward a syntactic reinterpretation of Harris & Halle (2005)
Harris & Halle (2005) present a carefully worked out analysis of certain nonstandard Spanish phenomena involving pronominal clitics and the verbal plural morpheme <i>-n</i>. At issue are plural imperatives in combination with one or more object clitics. In this paper, I suggest that Harris & Halle’s primarily morphological approach to these phenomena should be replaced by a more syntactic approach. The latter seems more revealing and more likely to tie in to other aspects of Spanish grammar (and to aspects of the grammar of other languages/dialects).
