論文中文摘要:In this study, we investigate the discourse-functional properties of the
extended intransitive clause (EIC) in relation to other clause types in three
Formosan languages: Tsou, Kavalan, and Squliq. We offer evidence, based
on tracking behavior of NPs, to show that case-marking in EICs is motivated
by a core/oblique distinction, and that the core/oblique distinction arises in a
systematic way from recurrent patterns in discourse. The referents of the
oblique-marked argument nominals in EICs in these languages are shown to
be consistently much less likely to be tracked or to be continuous than either
the nominative or the ergative argument of a nonactor voice clause. The data
derived from investigating the tracking behavior of noun phrases suggest that
the validity of a grammatical transitive/intransitive distinction in these lan-
guages is quite robust, and that the distinction can best be correctly discerned
by examining the functioning of various argument nominals in discourse.
