B04 - Interaction of nominal and verbal features for Differential Object Marking

The project aims at modeling Differential Object Marking (DOM) as a result of a complex interaction of nominal and verbal prominence-lending properties. One of the major challenges is to develop a model that allows for variation on both the micro level between closely related varieties and the macro level between Spanish and Turkish. Though manifesting commonalities in DOM with respect to its semantic/pragmatic function, Spanish and Turkish provide interesting divergences on the ranking of prominence-lending features, their interaction with structural conditions of the particular variety, and the way DOM is expressed.
