What can the semantics of number tell us about pseudo-incorporation? 

The following paper by Diane Massam provides a good background reading on the syntax of pseudo-incorporation for those who are interested.

Věra Dvořák & Teresa Torres Bustamante
Rutgers University

Last time, we learned about two opposing views of Case theory, the innovative "marantzian" one and the classical "chomskian" one. This time, we look at them in detail. First, Teresa will give an outline of the "alternative" approach as described in the paper by Alec Marantz. Then Věra will present Julie Legate's criticism of this approach which appeared in the first issue of this year's LI (and which we were encouraged to read in preparation for the last *ST@R already).

Two modalities of Case assignment: Evidence from Sakha

The material presented in this talk can be used to address some controversies about the relationship between syntax, morphology, and PF - which is a potential theme of general interest for ST@R this semester. People interested in seeing how these interface issues arise in Case theory in particular are invited to read the paper by Julie Legate on morphological and abstract Case, which can be compared to the results of the work presented in the talk.

Viable syntax: Rethinking minimalist architecture
